MILAN - Porto's Andre Villas-Boas
will not become the new coach of Inter Milan partly because
of an expensive release clause in his contract, Inter sporting
director Marco Branca said on Sunday.
Media reports said Branca had flown to talk with the coach
of the Portuguese and Europa League champions after Leonardo
signalled he was quitting Inter for a less stressful sporting
director role at Paris Saint-Germain.
"The presence in his contract of a very expensive break
clause among other things excludes the possibility of him
sitting on the Inter bench," Branca told Ansa in quotes carried
by Inter's website.
Former Argentina boss Marcelo Bielsa has ruled himself out
of the running after initial talks while England's Fabio Capello
and Fiorentina's Sinisa Mihajlovic have distanced themselves
from the role as the 2010 European champions seek a fourth coach
in just over a year.
