Ranieri wins tame Inter backing

Inter President Massimo Moratti has raised some doubts about Claudio Ranieri’s long-term future at the club.

Speaking outside his Milan offices on Friday after the side’s fourth straight loss in midweek, Moratti was asked if the club would stick with Ranieri.

“Let’s try to move forward with him, then we’ll see what happens,” he told journalists. “It’s a difficult moment, but it will pass.”

Ranieri replaced Gian Piero Gasperini in September when he signed a contract at the Stadio Meazza until June 2013.

Following a run of seven straight wins in Serie A, the Nerazzurri are again struggling after collecting just one point from the last 15 available.

They also lost the first leg of their last 16 Champions League tie to Marseille on Wednesday in a game which ended 1-0.

Reports today are suggesting that the Italian giants are now looking to attract foreign investors, but Moratti insisted that is not a priority.

“We'll think about those things in due course,” he responded. “For now we’re focused on the sporting issues.”
