After last year's debacle, things can't go much worse this season for Inter. Club president Massimo Moratti repeatedly backed under-fire coach Andrea Stramaccioni throughout what was a miserable season for the Nerazzurri. But in the end, finishing ninth in Serie A was too much for any boss at the San Siro to survive.

So what can Mazzarri do to get the Nerazzurri back on track?
