Italian journalist Fabio Ravezzani believes that Inter coach Simone Inzaghi is already close to losing control of the club, and that if he is to be sacked then former Genoa and Spezia coach Thiago Motta could be a logical replacement.

Tweeting after the Nerazzurri’s 2-0 defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich in the Champions League, Ravezzani gave his thoughts on the Nerazzurri coach’s situation and named former Inter midfielder Motta as a possible option to take his place.

Inzaghi has faced some of the most difficult moments of his Inter career over the opening months of his second season in charge, losing three matches out of six across all competitions whilst dealing with a number of tough situations within the team.

Should a shock departure of the former Lazio coach be on the cards, Motta would be someone who knows Inter well and impressed with some of his tactical displays in charge of Spezia last season, while as Ravezzani points out he would be available and would not command enormous wages.

Inter are a dull team with a coach who has lost his bearings and has had quarrelled with more than one player,” Ravezzani tweeted. “Maybe they need to take action before it’s too late. The most reasonable solution (in terms of tactics and wages) could be Thiago Motta.”
