Inter fires Ranieri and promotes Stramaccioni


MILAN (AP) -- Inter Milan changed coaches for the second time this season, firing Claudio Ranieri on Monday night after winning just one of its last 10 league matches.

Andrea Stramaccioni was promoted from youth club coach, one day after a 2-0 loss at Juventus.

Ranieri was hired in September to replace Gian Piero Gasperini but his tenure was marred by injuries and Inter's inability to overcome the departure of Samuel Eto'o.

Inter is eighth in Serie A at 12-12-5, is one shy of the club record for losses. set in 1947-48. It was eliminated from the Champions League in the second round by Marseille.
