Inter Milan coach Ranieri refuses to complain about transfer policy

Inter Milan coach Claudio Ranieri insists he's satisfied with the squad he has.

Ranieri refused to criticise the club for their January transfer dealings which saw Thiago Motta head for Paris Saint-Germain.

"I said I would like to have a wide attacking player but if it wasn't possible then it wasn't possible, that's all there is to it.

"We would have preferred not to sell Thiago Motta - we managed to convince him to stay until June and then he came back and said he wanted to move to Paris.

"Why force him to stay at all costs if he would then be lacking motivation? When I put him in the side against Napoli he gave away a penalty.

"I prefer to have players who want to stay. I've lost a top player and I'm really sorry about that, but that's how it goes."
