Inter Milan director general Ernesto Paolillo insists coach Roberto Mancini will be in charge next season.

Paolillo said: "The club and team have always been united to achieve the goal of the Scudetto, as evidenced by the constant presence of president Massimo Moratti.

"The statements of Roberto Mancini after the Liverpool game are not a problem, the coach has already clarified the meaning of his exit comments.

"There is no reason why Mancini cannot remain even next year, he has a contract. Reports about Jose Mourinho are damaging and a nuisance because it upsets our peaceful environment, but this is part of football."
