Legendary former midfielder Dejan Stankovic could be an option to replace Simone Inzaghi as Inter head coach if the latter is to find his position at the club untenable and depart or be sacked.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who identify the treble-winner as a potentially ideal candidate to take charge of the Nerazzurri if they find themselves needing a change of coach.
At the moment Inzaghi’s position remains secure on the Inter bench, but should the form of the team become any worse questions could start to asked, chief among them who could have the right qualities to take over if he departs.
Among high-level replacements, former Tottenham Hotspur and Paris Saint-Germain coach Maurico Pochettino would almost certainly be out of reach in terms of wages, whilst Roberto De Zerbi would not be a natural tactical fit at all for a team that have been playing with a back three and wingbacks for several seasons.
Stankovic would not likely command huge wages and proved himself with his stint in charge of Red Star Belgrade, whilst the 43-year-old is certainly a man who knows Inter inside and out.
Right now the priority at Inter looks to be continuing to back Inzaghi, but if the situation were to change then the Serb could come into the frame.
