Porto Coach Andre Villas-Boas Thumbs His Nose At Inter Milan

First former Argentina and Chile national coach Marcelo Bielsa turned down the advances of Inter Milan. Allegedly the club did not approach Carlo Ancelotti, possibly because they already knew the answer would be no. Now Portuguese media are reporting that Porto manager Andre Villas-Boas has rejected the nerazzurri as well. 

With Leonardo having quit to take on the role of director of sport at Paris Saint-Germain, Inter are desperate to find someone willing to coach their side -- a task you'd think would be easy for a club that won the treble two seasons ago and finished second in Serie A last season. Instead, it's as though Massimo Moratti is the class nerd, approaching the cheerleaders and the homecoming queen and wondering why he's getting turned down for dates. Apparently Villas-Boas wouldn't even take a meeting with the Inter president.

It seems Inter will now need to simply cross their fingers and hope that Fiorentina allow Sinisa Mihajlovic to leave the club. Otherwise, it may be down to Gian Piero Gasperini.
