Inter owner Massimo Moratti has given Coach Andrea Stramaccioni his full confidence, saying the 36-year-old has 'all the skills' needed to do well.
The Nerazzurri President was candid when asked about why he appointed the inexperienced Italian as Head Coach of the club, and was also full of verve when describing what he calls 'an important year' for the San Siro side.
“It was not courageous of me to choose him in particular,” Moratti told Sport Mediaset. “He has all the skills to take the job, and is a quality person.
“This is a turning point - sport and politics are coming together in an economy that should give us the strength to find positive values.
“It is an important year in which we reconstruct the basic values of Inter. The road will be difficult but with quality players, we will get back to the top of the League.”
The Milanese giants have had a mixed start to the campaign so far, winning one and losing one of their first two games.
