Reports in Italy suggest that Inter Milan manager Walter Mazzarri is about to sign a one-year contract extension to his current deal at the San Siro.
The former Napoli boss has seen his Nerazzurri side go unbeaten in their last six Serie A fixtures, which sees them currently sit fifth in the table on 47 points, just one point behind fourth placed Fiorentina.
Inter are 1.47 in the match betting to beat Atalanta this Sunday and victory could see the leapfrog the Viola, who are 4.92 outsiders for their away clash with Napoli, in the table.
Inter, who finished in a relatively lowly ninth place last season, are starting to reap the rewards of Mazzarri’s management as the club is looking increasingly likely to end their brief one year European exodus – this season is the first time that Inter have not competed in Europe since the 1999/2000 campaign.
Unless Inter capitulate spectacularly over the remaining few games, they should qualify for Europe, albeit most likely in the Europa League rather than the Champions League, which is a step in the right direction for both club and manager.
According to a report in Tuttosport, club president Erick Thohir is convinced that Mazzarri is the right man to the lead club forward and wants to ensure his manager stays at the Giuseppe Meazza beyond his contract, which is currently set to expire in 2015.
