MILAN - Former Genoa coach Gian Piero
Gasperini has emerged as the leading candidate to take over at
Inter Milan and a decision is due before the weekend, club
president Massimo Moratti said on Thursday.
Current coach Leonardo, whose side lost the Serie A title
last term for the first time in six seasons, is poised to leave
after just six months because he wants a less hands-on role as
sporting director at Paris Saint-Germain.
"The candidates are the same as yesterday, you will know
everything by the weekend," Moratti told reporters.
Inter's owner had confirmed on Wednesday that Gasperini, who
was sacked by perennial mid-table side Genoa early last season,
was one of the favourites.
A series of coaches including Marcelo Bielsa, new Chelsea
coach Andre Villas-Boas and Fiorentina's Sinisa Mihajlovic have
slipped from the 2010 European champions' grasp.
Moratti has also joked he could keep hold of Leonardo, his
third coach in a year, if he fails to find anyone else as the
Brazilian is still contracted to Inter and has not completed his
move to former club PSG.
