Moratti: Inter will keep Stramaccioni

Inter President Massimo Moratti has confirmed that Andrea Stramaccioni will remain as Coach for the 2012-13 season.

The 36-year-old was only given the job in late March after he was promoted from the Primavera set-up to replace Claudio Ranieri.

It was thought that the youngster would only stay in charge for the remainder of the season, but Moratti seems to have been convinced by a resurgence in results.

“I will confirm Stramaccioni,” he told Sky Sport Italia outside of his offices in Milan this morning. “He proved his experience in a derby that really delighted me.”

Stramaccioni, poached from Roma’s youth system, masterminded the 4-2 win over the Diavolo last night which saw Juventus win the title.

“Juve deserved the championship,” Moratti accepted. “I want the controversies to end though.”

Stramaccioni has won five, drawn two and lost one of his eight Serie A games to date.

Moratti has also dismissed suggestions that he would be meeting with Napoli chief Aurelio De Laurentiis today after the latter was spotted in the area this morning.

Reports suggest that Inter want Ezequiel Lavezzi for next term.
