New Inter Milan coach Andrea Stramaccioni is confident he can handle the job.
Stramaccioni was named new coach yesterday after the dismissal of Claudio Ranieri.
“If you decide to do this work, then it is a dream, full stop. It can be concentrated on what you do on the field, what you say to a player, but I think the word ‘fear’ is inaccurate. When the President told me what he had decided, my head flew immediately and only to what I would do on the field with these lads.
“When I left the meeting with the President, I noted that I was myself all the way through and expressed my ideas. If Moratti, who wrote European football history, decided to give me this chance then it’s because of what he saw me do in the last six months.
“I take this position with enthusiasm and humility, but also confidence and belief in what I know I can do. I realise these are very different players to the Primavera, but they are great professionals and I have a very strong club behind me. I just focus on what I can do on the field with these lads.”
