Gian Piero Gasperini admits he is 'very disappointed' to have been shown the door at Inter Milan after just three months in charge.

The 53-year-old was dismissed by the Serie A giants on Wednesday following a disappointing start to the 2011/12 campaign.

With the Nerazzurri having failed to win a match this term, it was decided that another change in the dugout is required.

Inter are now looking for their fourth coach in the space of 15 months, having struggled to find a suitable replacement for Jose Mourinho.

President Massimo Moratti claims he had no choice but to wield the axe again, with a statement released by the club reading: "The club wishes to thank Gian Piero Gasperini for the effort shown during his tenure and manifests its true disappointment for the interruption of the relationship with the coach."

Gasperini is surprised to have been forced out so soon and believes he would have turned performances around in time.

He told the club's official website: "In the end, the results are the ones that determine everything. I am very disappointed. It's a pity that our relationship had to be interrupted."


Moratti has refused to reveal who the leading candidates are to fill the managerial void at Giuseppe Meazza, but has hinted that it will be a figure well-known to the club.

"We've already discussed this, I believe," he said.

The Inter surpremo has also claimed that Gasperini was relieved of his duties after losing the support of his players - something the former Genoa coach denies.

"When you lose in the manner that we did against Novara, there is nothing positive to take from that," Moratti said.

"Gasperini did not seem to be in control."

Gasperini said in response: "Moratti has declared that I don't have the support of the players?

"The rapport with the group is optimum. If the problem is the coach, then it has an easy solution.

"If, instead, as I believe, the problem is another one, then we must resolve it through work."
