Andrea Stramaccioni was appointed Inter Milan coach on a permanent basis on Tuesday when he signed a three year contract, the 2010 UEFA Champions League winners president Massimo Moratti announced.
The 36-year-old - who guided the club's youth team to the under-19s Champions League equivalent title against Ajax in March - replaced the sacked Claudio Ranieri in late March.
While he was unable to get them into next season's Champions League Stramaccioni did guide them to a 4-2 win over city rivals AC Milan in the penultimate game of the season.
Stramaccioni's playing career ended early due to a bad injury he sustained when playing for Bologna in the third division.
He went on to coach various amateur and youth teams, including Roma, before taking over the Italy under-17s.
