MILAN - "I'm thrilled" were the first words uttered by Gian Piero Gasperini, Inter's new coach, as he entered Nerazzurri headquarters in Corso Vittorio Emanuele, Milan. Bombarded by questions from the dozens of journalists awaiting him, Gasperini added: "I can't wait to start and get down to work, though the players are still on holiday so I'll have to wait a bit. We want to have a great season. What can I promise? The best. Was it a surpise? A wonderful surprise."
