Ranocchia eyes 'extraordinary' feat

Andrea Ranocchia believes Inter are working towards ‘something extraordinary’ under new boss Antonio Conte.

Inter picked up wins against Paris Saint-Germain and Tottenham Hotspur at the International Champions Cup and have begun the 2019-20 campaign with back-to-back victories in Serie A.

“We must stay on this path,” Ranocchia told Sky Sport Italia.

“The season is long and there are many commitments awaiting us. Now the games have started coming every three days.

“The work we’re doing is aimed at building something extraordinary, all the players who have arrived are very good, both young and experienced.

“They’re working well, but what needs to be extraordinary this time is the group, which is the most important thing and what lets you win games and trophies.”

The defender was then asked about the Mauro Icardi saga, which ended with the striker joining Paris Saint-Germain.

“Like I’ve always said, it was a problem between him and the club. Both have found themselves a suitable solution and now we’re thinking about continuing what we started.

“It didn’t sap any energy from our work in preseason and the last few weeks.”
