The 2011–12 season was Football Club Internazionale Milano's 103th in existence and 96th consecutive season in the top flight of Italian football. The team competed for the 10th consecutive season in the Champions League, breaking a record for Italian clubs.

Season overview[edit]

Massimo Moratti bets on Gian Piero Gasperini, the coach who in 2009 led Genoa to a comeback in UEFA competitions after 20 years.[1] Other hopes have the faces and names of Ricky Álvarez - a winger - and Diego Forlán, a centre-forward bought in order to replace Samuel Eto'o, flown in Russia.[1] Gasperini makes his official debut in Supercoppa Italiana, losing 2–1 to Milan and wasting the only seasonal chance to win a trophy.[2] He is sacked in late September, due to a bad start in domestic league: Inter is defeated by Palermo and Novara, collecting just a draw with Roma.[3][4]

Claudio Ranieri takes his place, but is not - at least in first weeks - luckier.[5] Inter wins for the first time at home in October, beating Chievo 1–0.[6] Between December 2011 and January 2012, anyway, the side manages to get a notable comeback: it includes 7 consecutive wins in league, and 8 overall.[7] When this streak is stopped, however, Inter goes on the other extreme and, from 25 January to March 4, never wins a game.[8][9][10] In the match against Catania Nerazzurri are losing 2–0 when, encouraged by their fans, manage to recover the gap for a 2–2 final.[11] In the next matchday, the side returns to win: once again, Chievo is the «victim».[12] Ranieri bursts into tears after the match, tears that will be of pain when - 4 days after - Olympique Marseille knocks Inter out of Champions League.[13] Ranieri leads the team for other only 2 matches, being sacked after the 2–0 suffered from Juventus: it was the first derby of Italy hosted in Juventus Stadium.[14] The third, and last, seasonal coach is Andrea Stramaccioni (aged 36): collecting 17 points in 9 final games, he manages to reach a sixth place and the preliminaries of Europa League as result of a hard season.[15][16][17]
