Inter Milan Eye Michael Laudrup for Head Coach Post
Serie A giants Inter Milan are believed to be pondering over appointing former Swansea manager Michael Laudrup as their new manager, according to Tuttosport.
For Inter’s high-calibre standards, they are not doing well this season. As it stands, they are in fifth place on the league table with 49 points, 15 points clear of the Champions League qualification spots and only three points clear of losing their Europa League qualification place.
With Inter’s head-honcho Erick Thohir expecting great things for the Nerazzurri this season under Walter Mazzarri, who lead Napoli to a second place finish in the 2012-13 campaign, their current situation in the league with just seven games to go is certainly disappointing.
And now it appears that Thohir is ready to axe his Italian manager, with Michael Laudrup set to be installed as the replacement.
Laudrup lead humble Welsh side Swansea to a Capital One Cup trophy win last season on a meager budget before he was sacked by the club in February over, as English media reported at that time, conflicting views on dealing in the transfer market.
Before that, Laudrup was on the shortlist of many different clubs, most notably of which was Real Madrid. Now Laudrup’s name appears on another shortlist, this time on Inter’s.
And with Laudrup currently without a club, Inter are thought to be ready to offer the Danish tactician a bumper pay packet to convince him to go back to football management, this time in the Serie A.
Such an experience will be a new undertaking for Laudrup, who is yet to manage a club in Italy. Whether or not he makes the move, however, only time can tell.
