Season overviewEdit

Massimo Moratti bets on Gian Piero Gasperini, the coach who in 2009 led Genoa to a comeback in UEFA competitions after 20 years.[1] Other hopes have the faces and names of Ricky Álvarez - a winger - and Diego Forlán, a centre-forward bought in order to replace Samuel Eto'o, flown in Russia.[1] Gasperini makes his official debut in Supercoppa Italiana, losing 2–1 to Milan and wasting the only seasonal chance to win a trophy.[2] He is sacked in late September, due to a bad start in domestic league: Inter is defeated by Palermo and Novara, collecting just a draw with Roma.[3][4]

Claudio Ranieri takes his place, but is not - at least in first weeks - luckier.[5] Inter wins for the first time at home in October, beating Chievo 1–0.[6] Between December 2011 and January 2012, anyway, the side manages to get a notable comeback: it includes 7 consecutive wins in league, and 8 overall.[7] When this streak is stopped, however, Inter goes on the other extreme and, from 25 January to March 4, never wins a game.[8][9][10] In the match against Catania Nerazzurri are losing 2–0 when, encouraged by their fans, manage to recover the gap for a 2–2 final.[11] In the next matchday, the side returns to win: once again, Chievo is the «victim».[12] Ranieri bursts into tears after the match, tears that will be of pain when - 4 days after - Olympique Marseille knocks Inter out of Champions League.[13] Ranieri leads the team for other only 2 matches, being sacked after the 2–0 suffered from Juventus: it was the first derby of Italy hosted in Juventus Stadium.[14] The third, and last, seasonal coach is Andrea Stramaccioni (aged 36): collecting 17 points in 9 final games, he manages to reach a sixth place and the preliminaries of Europa League as result of a hard season.[15][16][17]
