thumbnail Hello,

The Nerazzurri chief has seemingly backed the coach after he claimed on Monday that he was mulling over his future at San Siro

Inter president Massimo Moratti has given a strong indication that he will not sack coach Claudio Ranieri.

The 60-year-old is under fire after the Nerazzurri dropped to seventh in the domestic table following a six-game winless run in Serie A.
Tinkerman's future in doubt: Could Ranieri soon be out in the cold?

Moratti admitted on Monday that he was pondering Ranieri's future at the club, but the Inter supremo has now seemingly given the coach a vote of confidence.

"Yes, I have spoken with Ranieri," Moratti told reporters. "Did I clear things up with him? Yes."

Ranieri arrived at Inter in September as a replacement for Gian Piero Gasperini after the club's dismal start to the season.

He oversaw Inter's recovery as the club shot up the Serie A table, but the latest results have raised doubts over his future at San Siro.

The Nerazzurri, who are 15 points adrift of cross-town rivals AC Milan, host Catania on Sunday.
