Inter president Moratti mulling over Ranieri's position

The Roman is under pressure after a run of five successive defeats in all competitions but the Nerazzurri supremo insists he will not make any rash decisions on the coach's future
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.
