Inter President Massimo Moratti says no decision on the future of boss Andrea Stramaccioni will be made today.
Reports suggest that Stramaccioni will be axed, possibly to be replaced by available Napoli tactician Walter Mazzarri.
“There is no chance of anything being resolved by this evening, but there’s no rush,” the Nerazzurri chief noted.
“We’ve got time. We’re still making decisions and nothing’s been done yet.”
Stramaccioni was appointed as boss in March 2012 after being promoted from the youth team set-up to replace Claudio Ranieri.
However, Inter have had a disastrous campaign seeing as they have failed to qualify for Europe after finishing ninth.
Inter chief Massimo Moratti has admitted that he is reflecting on what path the club should go down next.
The Nerazzurri have had a disastrous season which has raised doubts about the future of boss Andrea Stramaccioni.
“I’ve not yet spoken to him nor anyone else,” the Beneamata President said in Milan this morning. “We’ll see if, after this season, I have time to sort things out.
“I’m thinking long and hard about what to do. This is a period in which, along with everything else, I’m trying to find a solution.”
Andrea Stramaccioni has said that he hopes he will be part of the “new Inter Milan” as the Nerazzurri board plan for a brighter future at the end of a disastrous Serie A season.
The 37-year-old tactician expects to sit down with club president Massimo Moratti in the coming days to ruminate on a ninth-placed finish – an outcome confirmed by last night’s 5-2 home defeat to Udinese – and his own long-term prospects at San Siro.
Andrea Stramaccioni is glad Inter’s disastrous season is over. “Massimo Moratti has clear ideas on how to rebuild.”
The Nerazzurri were beaten 5-2 at home by Udinese, finishing in ninth place, which is the worst position in the Moratti era.
“It’s difficult to judge tonight’s game, as we were missing so many players in defence and Udinese pounced on two mistakes in the opening 10 minutes,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.
“That put the match on the right track for them, as Udinese are the most dangerous team in Serie A when given space to run into.

Udinese made no mistake in tying down the final automatic Europa League place by condemning Inter Milan to one last defeat at the end of a miserable Serie A season at San Siro.
There was no prospect of continental competition for the Azzurri, who limped over the line to finish ninth tonight, but Udinese knew victory would bar Lazio from snatching fifth place.
Quickfire goals from Giampiero Pinzi and Maurizio Domizzi proved the visitors’ intent with Antonio Di Natale, Gabriel Silva and Luis Muriel later rendering efforts from Juan Jesus and Tommaso Rocchi mere consolations.

The Corriere dello Sport claims that Napoli have offered Gokhan Inler to Inter in exchange for Fredy Guarin.
Azzurri chief Aurelio De Laurentiis has apparently already tabled the bid to San Siro supremo Massimo Moratti, but the latter has so far declined.
The Colombian international has been one of the few Nerazzurri players who have caught the eye during their problematic 2012-13 campaign.
The 26-year-old, signed from Porto in January 2012 for €13m, has scored 10 goals in 46 matches for the Beneamata this term.
Inler, meanwhile, is a 28-year-old midfielder who has also been paired with a possible move to Milan at the end of the season.
Inter Milan‘s injury crisis deepened on Thursday as Italy forward Antonio Cassano broke his hand falling awkwardly in training, the club said.
Cassano had only just come back from another injury that kept him out of action for a month and a half.
Gazzetta dello Sport have revealed that the Nerazzurri striker could depart from San Siro this summer, with clubs in the United Arab Emirates and Monaco interested in his services.
The 30-year-old has been plagued with injuries this term, playing just 28 games and scoring only seven League goals in 2012/13. And the newspaper has claimed that the club want to start afresh for next campaign, and off-load the forward.
According to reports out of Africa, Samger and Gambia international Sulayman Marreh, is set for a medical with Inter Milan, after impressing scouts of the team.
The 17-year-old midfielder who can also play as a forward caught the attention of Inter after playing in the eight-team Umbria international football championship last week where he scored three goals.
“As I am speaking, Inter Milan are interested in me, that is what I was told [but I] just have to put my fingers crossed and see what happens” said Marreh.

Andrea Stramaccioni is determined to look on the bright side after Inter’s 0-0 draw with Genoa. “We’re clinging to Fredy Guarin.”
The Nerazzurri had lost seven of the previous nine rounds, so were pleased enough with a point at Marassi.
“The team is growing in terms of ball control. The lads played with character against a Genoa side in good shape,” insisted the Coach.
“Over the last few games we have improved in terms of performance. In the second half Antonio Cassano’s return from injury was useful, as it made us more unpredictable.”
Genoa secured their Serie A status with a goalless draw against Inter Milan, whose poor late-season form continued at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris.
The hosts posed the greatest goalscoring threat, but were ultimately content with a draw which, with Palermo beaten by Fiorentina, ensured their place in the top flight next season.
For Inter, the draw ended a three-game losing streak, but it was only their fourth point in the last seven matches, meaning they have little to play for when they host Udinese next weekend, on the final day of the season.
