But the under-pressure coach believes the return of some of his first-choice players can help bring back the team's swagger.

Inter have slipped to sixth place in Serie A, four points behind third-placed rivals AC Milan, after winning just one of their last four matches.

They also face near-inevitable elimination from the Europa League after a 3-0 first-leg defeat to Tottenham in the last 16.

Moratti said on Monday that Stramaccioni will only remain in his post if results improve.

And the coach told inter.it: "It is normal and proper at this time that Moratti is not satisfied with the results of the team.

"The objective for the next 10 games is to restore confidence and a swagger to Inter on the pitch."

That one recent victory saw Inter come from 2-0 down at half-time to beat Catania 3-2, while they also recovered from a half-time deficit to draw with Milan.

And Stramaccioni said: "We are focusing on analysing the second half of recent matches, when the team have shown more fight and better football.

"We are only four points behind third place and getting the injured players back will help us to get there."

Dejan Stankovic and Ezequiel Schelotto returned from injury against Bologna last time out, with the fit-again Zdravko Kuzmanovic and Tommaso Rocchi among the subsitutes.

Walter Samuel and Fredy Guarin are also on the road to recovery but striker Diego Milito will miss the rest of the season and defender Yuto Nagatomo is another long-term casualty.
