APPIANO GENTILE – "There is so much excitement in this and the reason I do this job is because of the thrills it gives you. I’m proud to be part of the Nerazzurri family", said Claudio Ranieri, as he opened the press conference.
The new coach was then asked what approach he was going to take with Inter now: "There has been a lot of bad luck, misfortune and injury, now we have to regain our confidence and self-esteem and try and pick up some points. It’s the beginning of a new path; to win here with Inter would be splendid: a year and a half ago these lads were champions. I believe in their desire to react. They have slipped back but what’s important is to realise that and to fight back. I want to see that compact group again that never gave up which I saw when I played against them. We need to close in and stay compact and challenge for every ball. Now we need to think about getting results. That’s the most important thing: they are used to winning, so they just have to start doing it again."
