Christian Chivu has stated Frank de Boer should have been given more time at the head of Inter Milan.
The Dutch manager was sacked at the beginning of November for a run of four defeats. Christian Chivu believes that the Inter Milan owners have made a mistake by sacking the manager as he was the right person to manage the club.
The former Inter Milan player believes that Frank de Boer was the right person at Inter Milan. He said that de Boer has plenty of experience as a player and has what it takes to manage at the highest level. He believes that he should be given more time to build a team that will be able to challenge the likes of Juventus and Roma at the head of the table.
Christian Chivu said that other clubs such as Juventus and Napoli are better structured than Inter Milan and Frank de Boer was never going to change that in a short time. He believes that the owners should have provided resources first and then assess the coach.
Christian Chivu believes that the new owners should invest massively in the club if they want Inter Milan to challenge for the title. He said that Italian football has declined in recent years and that other European clubs have improved massively. He said that Inter Milan should be ready to pay high wages if they want to bring the best talents in Italy.
He stated that the objective of the team this season should be at least to clinch a European place that will allow the team to improve quickly. He believes that they have the necessary players to qualify at least for the Europa League and it is up to the players to give their best on the pitch.
