Ranieri to Inter Channel: "An honour to be here"
"I don't believe in a winning system of play but in winning players"
APPIANO GENTILE - "I arrive here with a strong sense of pride. I was very
happy to receive the call from president Moratti." These were the first
words of the new Nerazzurri coach Claudio Ranieri to the microphones of Inter
Channel on his first day of work at the Centro Sportivo Angelo Moratti.
Ranieri continued: "I had a meeting today with president Moratti that was
very friendly. We met each other back before he was president of Inter and I was
at the San Siro to see AC Milan v Inter." Then another memory, one that
was all black and blue, from when Ranieri was a youngster: "I was 13-14

He then went on to talk about Inter's current moment and himself: "Inter
are what we have all seen in these recent weeks, and it's not a good moment. There
have been injuries and bad luck, but I'm convinced that this team has it in its
DNA to start winning again and start believing in itself. I think there are
different types of coaches: I'm someone who does not believe in a winning system
of play but in winning players, in the sensation that is created between the coach
and players. If that is created then it's possible to start winning again."
