Andrea Stramaccioni: Under pressure less than a year after succeeding Claudio Ra

Stramaccioni stepped up to take charge of Inter in March 2012, having previously managed the club's reserves, replacing the sacked Claudio Ranieri.

Inter are currently fifth in Serie A, but a 4-1 defeat to Fiorentina led to more speculation over Stramaccioni's future.

Recent reports in Italy suggested that the 37-year-old had five games to turn Inter's fortunes around, but Moratti has backed the former Bologna defender, whose playing career was cut short by injury.

"Stramaccioni has never been up for discussion," Moratti declared. "He's always made a lot of sacrifices for the team and he keeps on improving."

Inter trail their Milanese rivals by two points, and a win in the San Siro could see the Nerazzurri move into third place in the Serie A table.

"We hope the pressure will get to Milan this weekend," Moratti added. "I'll just ask my players to give their all.

"They have to respect the shirt and continue chasing third place in Serie A which is our objective."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
