Milan:

Inter Milan on Friday named Gian Piero Gasperini as its new coach.

In an announcement posted on Inter's website, Inter president Massimo Moratti expressed "complete satisfaction" with the choice.

Gasperini, a former Genoa coach, became the leading candidate after Inter failed to lure Fabio Capello from England and Chelsea hired Andre Villas-Boas. He replaces Leonardo, who is in negotiations over an executive position with Paris Saint-Germain.

Inter said Gasperini will sign a two-year contract.

Gasperini, 53, led Genoa to promotion from the second division in 2007 and qualification for the Europa League with a fifth-place finish in Serie A in 2009. He was fired by Genoa in November.
