Italian club Inter Milan announces departure of Mancini

MILAN (AP) " Inter Milan says coach Roberto Mancini has left the Italian club after less than two years in charge.

Mancini joined Inter in November 2014. The team led Serie A toward the end of the first half of last season but faded away to finish in fourth place, missing out on Champions League qualification.

Inter announced Mancini's departure in a statement on its official website on Monday, saying the decision was by mutual consent.

Inter has been under new ownership since June after Chinese retail giant Suning bought a majority stake.
