  • Icardi Spalletti Inter Serie A

Former AC Milan coach Fabio Capello supports Inter Milan's decision to sack Mauro Icardi as captain.

It was announced earlier in the week that Inter had made the decision to strip him of the armband and instead appoint Samir Handanovic as club captain.

The 25-year-old still has two-and-a-half years remaining on his contract at the San Siro, but the likes of Real Madrid and Chelsea have been heavily linked with a bid this summer amid reports that Inter have fallen out with his wife and agent Wanda Nara.

The Chinese-owned club crashed out of the Champions League and travel to Rapid Vienna for their Europe League round of 32, first-leg game on Thursday.

'Things around him have disturbed him and the team he captained.

It is understood that the decision was a mutual one between the Serie A club and manager Luciano Spalletti.

"I have not created any problems for Icardi", Spalletti told DAZN.

The Slovenia worldwide, 34, joined Inter from Udinese in 2012 while Icardi arrived from Sampdoria in 2013, taking over as captain from Andrea Ranocchia in 2015.

"There will be time to clear things up in the coming days, but as far as I am concerned, this is all I have to say on Mauro".

The Argentine striker who is on a seven-game goal-dought has reportedly been at loggerheads with the club's hierarchy over a new contract, amidst interest from Europe's elite.

His relationship with Inter's fans has been frosty ever since, despite his return of 122 goals in 210 games, and a poll on La Gazzetta dello Sport's website on Wednesday asking whether Inter had been right to scrap him of the captaincy saw nearly 90 percent of over 15,000 votes backing the club's stance.
