Inter Milan have issued a vote of confidence in boss Frank De Boer, despite their poor start to the season.
De Boer arrived at the San Siro during the summer, but his position has already come under scrutiny with Inter 10th in the table and only ending a four-game winless streak with Wednesday’s 2-1 success against Torino.
However, Inter chief executive Michael Bolingbroke insists that despite several approaches from agents, the Serie A club have no plans to dispense with De Boer’s services.
"The management and owners are 100 percent behind Frank because we believe in him and we know he does not have an easy job on his hands," he said.
"Frank only came in a short time before the start of the season and that is never easy for any coach. He will have a good chance to really work with the team during the international break.
"A number of agents have contacted us to put forward coaches or managers they represent, but we have not been in touch with anyone.
“We began the season with a plan and that plan has not changed.
“Having to start all over again not long before the opening weekend of the season was a calculated risk, albeit the decision was in the club's best interest."
