Inter Will Not Sack Walter Mazzarri

Inter Milan Executive Officer Erick Thohir has assured coach Walter Mazzarri he won’t be sacked.

Some Nezzaruzzi fans called for the dismissal of the Italian boss, who got the reins in 2013, following a 1-0 a defeat by their Milan rivals AC Milan on 4 May.

“Mazzari is staying. HE still has a contract and I want to respect that,” Indonesian businessman Thohir said.

Inter are fifth in the Serie A table, with only four points left between them and 10th-placed Lazio, who they face on Saturday.

“I understand the fans. I’m not happy either but we need to give the manager a chance. It’s important that we start next season with some stability in order to grow.”
