Andrea Stramaccioni joked his “12 agents have to negotiate my salary” if he is to be confirmed on the Inter bench next season.
President Massimo Moratti confirmed he is pushing to keep the former youth team Coach, who remains unbeaten after seeing off Cesena 2-1 today.
“Will I stay? It depends, my 12 agents have to negotiate my salary,” smiled the 36-year-old.
“It was the most difficult game today, because we could catch third place and in the past this sort of situation prompted the team to slip up,” said Stramaccioni.
“It is therefore a very important victory for us. We saw the best Inter today, as we created so many chances despite the fact we initially went behind.
“We kept the ball well and were consistent. The lads also showed character to turn the result around and win a tough match. Although Cesena were already relegated, they played at 100 per cent and really honoured Serie A.
“Of course we can do better, as we concede goals too easily, but we are working on this.”
Mauro Zarate came off the bench and scored, so Stramaccioni was asked whether he’ll want to keep the Lazio-owned striker.
“I don’t think it is opportune to talk about these issues here. We are focused only on the next game.”
