Ranocchia: ‘Fans, back Inter’

Andrea Ranocchia calls on Inter fans to turn up in big numbers to help them overturn a 3-1 deficit against Wolfsburg on Thursday.

The Nerazzurri took the lead in the first leg of their Europa League Last 16 tie, but a series of defensive howlers saw them eventually succumb to the Bundesliga side.

“It’s an in-or-out game,” Ranocchia told Sky ahead of the second leg.

“Maybe they’ll be relaxed after the score in the first leg, but I’m sure our fans will help us a lot.

“We’ll have to be solid from the start, making sure we don’t concede or risk anything, there’s no need to hurry as the game lasts 90 minutes.

“When you concede goals there are a lot of reasons, there’s an explanation for each goal.

“We often run the risk of letting the opposition take the lead, and against Wolfsburg tomorrow we absolutely must not do that or we’re out.

“Tomorrow we play to make the Quarter Finals, it’s a qualification decider, for us and for them.

“I hope the stadium will be packed, we need their [Inter fans’] support from the first minute to the last.”
