Internazionale once again failed to win the Serie A title, despite having bought Christian Vieri for a world record transfer fee in the summer of 1999. Juventus' highly regarded goalkeeper Angelo Peruzzi and French national team captain Laurent Blanc arrived as well, while Álvaro Recoba was brought back after his success in Venezia during the spring. Both Vieri and Brazilian superstar Ronaldo had lots of injury problems, with the Brazilian being worst off, having ruptured his cruciate ligament in a comeback attempt against Lazio. New coach Marcello Lippi was put under increasing pressure, and when Inter missed out on Champions League qualification in the summer, he was sacked.
