New Inter Milan boss Frank de Boer has already set his sights on silverware at the club after signed a three-year deal at the San Siro.

The 46-year-old was linked with the job on Monday just hours after Roberto Mancini was sacked by the club.

Mancini’s relationship with Chinese company Suning Holdings broke down earlier this summer and the club have now decided to give De Boer the reigns.

A statement on the club’s website read: “[Frank] de Boer will join the Nerazzurri on a three-year contract and will take charge of first team training this afternoon.

The Dutchman brings with him a wealth of international experience having played at the highest level for both club and country. As head coach of Ajax De Boer won four consecutive Eredivisie titles between 2011 and 2014.”

The former Ajax coach had been linked with both Everton and Southampton a few months ago but he will now try to help Inter change their fortunes.

The Italian giants have failed to deliver in recent years but Mancini managed to guide them into fourth last season.

De Boer will now try to compete with Roma, Napoli and Juventus for the league title and he has set his sights on silverware immediately.

He told reporters waiting for him in the airport: “I hope I can achieve a lot of success here. I’ll see you tomorrow at the press conference!”

Inter are priced at 13.00 to win the title this season and they will take on Chievo in their first game of the new campaign on Saturday August 20.
