Inter Women have appointed former Juventus Women boss Rita Guarino as head coach ahead of next season.

Speaking to Inter’s official site to mark her appointment, Guarino talked about the appointment as an exciting development in her career, and praised Inter Women.

Appointed by the Bianconeri in 2017, Guarino has won the last four Serie A titles as Juventus Women boss, and will hope to bring this success to the Giuseppe Meazza.

Guarino played as a forward during her playing career, scoring 35 goals in 99 appearances for the Italian women’s national team while also scoring prolifically for clubs including Torres, Fiammamonza, and Foroni Verona.

Upon retiring from playing, Guarino became the assistant coach of Italy’s women’s under-17 side in 2008, before taking over the head coaching position in 2015.

After two years in charge of the under-17 side, she was hired by Juventus to coach the Bianconeri’s women’s side where her reputation grew.

Speaking to Inter’s official site, Guarino had this to say:

“This new opportunity will be very stimulating, because I believe that a club like Inter has great opportunities for growth.”

“For me it is a challenge because it means making yourself completely available to try, together with the club, to grow as fast as possible.”
