Inter Coach Rafael Benitez Sacked By Email; Leonardo In Pole For Job - Report

Leonardo is one step away from replacing Rafael Benitez at Inter.

Benitez seems likely to leave the champions as his relations at club level have caused a cocktail of concern among the chiefs, despite Massimo Moratti claiming there was no drastic action in place on Tuesday night.

La Gazzetta dello Sport claims Inter have sacked Benitez by email after the club's lawyer sent him a note making it clear he was no longer required.

That leaves former Milan man Leonardo as favourite to come in and take the reins on a two-year deal.

Luciano Spalletti has also been linked with the job, but the Russian club already said their coach was staying.

However, there is another candidate. Arabic edition sources claim Al Naser coach Walter Zenga is about to leave the Saudi club and head to Milan.
