Inter Milan have confirmed they have parted company with head coach Frank De Boer, less than three months after appointing the former Ajax boss.

De Boer was named the Nerazzurri's new boss on Aug. 9, 24 hours after Roberto Mancini was shown the door and just a fortnight before the start of the Serie A season.

"FC Internazionale Milano announce that they have today terminated the contract with head coach Frank de Boer," a statement on the Serie A club's website read.

"The first team will momentarily be coached by the youth team coach Stefano Vecchi, who will be on the bench for the UEFA Europa League game against Southampton.

"The club thanks Frank and his staff for his work with the club, wishing them the best for the future. Further updates regarding the management of the first team will be announced subsequently."
