Inter and the start of the ‘Stramala’ Era

It’s been a rollercoaster season for Inter and their fans.  After a glorious winning cycle that saw the club claim 15 titles (5 Scudetti, 4 Coppe Italia, 4 Supercoppe Italiane, a Champions League and a Clubs World Cup), the club is set to finish the season empty handed for the first time in 7 years .
Back in the summer of 2011, Brazilian coach Leonardo decided to leave the club unexpectedly after receiving a lucrative offer from French giants PSG when he only was in charge for 6 months. The club, who have already appointed the former Milan midfielder, after sacking José Mourinho’s replacement Rafael Benítez, found itself looking for another man to lead the ‘World Champions’ at the time. After a month or so of painful search that saw them being linked to the likes of Fabio Capello, Siniša Mihajlović, Marcelo Bielsa, and Luciano Spalletti, the club finally decided to go with former Juventus Primavera and Genoa coach Gian Piero Gasperini, and this is where the disastrous journey started.
