Inter president Massimo Moratti has admitted that he is currently evaluating Claudio Ranieri's position as boss but insisted that there is a chance that the 60-year-old could remain at San Siro.
The pressure is mounting on Ranieri after a run of five straight defeats in all competitions but Moratti insists that he will not be rushed into making a rash decision on the Roman's future.
"We're thinking, we're seeing [what we can do]," the Nerazzurri supremo is quoted as saying by La Repubblica.
"Now I will call Ranieri because I haven't yet heard from him and we will see in a little bit what we'll do.
"Could we come out of this situation still with Ranieri [in charge]? I think so. However, now I want to hear his state of mind and that of the players."
Inter lie seventh in Serie A and are 1-0 down after the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie with Marseille.
