Forgotten Inter Milan Finding Stability
Serie A By: Okanga Okanga | 04/02/2017
The story of FC Internazionale is akin to that told of Egypt in the time of Joseph. According to the good book, the Egyptians experienced seven years of boom and thanks to the vision of Joseph were able to save for the seven years of famine that followed. Inter enjoyed similar years of boom under the management of Antonio Mancini and then Jose Mourinho between 2006 and 2010. They won the Calcio every single year over that period and crowned the glory with the treble under the present Manchester United manager. What followed that unprecedented success has been nearly 7 years of gloom and doom. Inter have fallen very far from the green pastures and not even the injection of substantial funds from foreign investors and the appointment of promising manager Frank De Boer in place of the returned Mancini last summer ever threatened to revive the Nerazzurri. De Boer was sacked at the start of November after just 4 wins in 11 games. Some may feel that the Dutchman was not afforded enough time to blend his team of talented players into a unit.
