Inter Milan’s season has come spectacularly off the rails with yet another loss, this time to Serie A debutants Novara. Manager Gian Piero Gasperini’s position now looks untenable following the humiliating 3-1 defeat to a side celebrating their first win in the Italian top flight for over fifty years. Inter’s formidable president Massimo Moratti said after the match that he would consider all options after a night’s sleep.

Inter have now got off to their worst start in living memory with no wins from their first five competitive fixtures and only one point from their three league games.
