Former Inter player Andrea Scanziani believes a coaching change was necessary.
"A changing of coach was in the air," Scanziani said. "Having won everything with (Jose) Mourinho, Inter has failed to find the right coach.
"The important thing now is for the club and the players to support the young coach. He will need help to find synergy with the squad in order to do well. Inter can still finish in the European qualifying positions."
Stramaccioni is Inter’s fifth coach in 22 months. His first game in charge will be against Genoa on Sunday.
