Moratti: Ranieri not at risk

Inter chief Massimo Moratti has underlined that he isn’t planning on sacking boss Claudio Ranieri.

Despite their exit from the Champions League and a slump in results which has seen them collect just six points from the last 27 available, the President insists the tactician is safe.

“Ranieri is not at risk, his bench is steady,” the oil baron noted following the 0-0 draw with Atalanta on Sunday.

The Nerazzurri are next in action against Scudetto-chasing Juventus and the San Siro chief thinks a victory in Turin could make a big difference to the campaign.

“A win would wake us all up,” Moratti continued. “It could be an important turning point. Winning helps you to win!”

The Beneamata are currently seventh in the standings, seven points away from third place and qualification for next season’s Champions League.

Despite Moratti’s latest statements, the club are being tipped to show Ranieri the door at the end of the campaign.
