Ranieri was replaced by youth team boss Andrea Stramaccioni.
â€śInter have been struggling for a while and the results were not arriving,â€ť Mazzola, a former player and director at the club, told TMW.
â€śYou would have to be inside the club to understand what went wrong, but I would have waited before coming to the conclusion to dismiss Ranieri.
â€śI donâ€™t think the Coach is totally to blame.â€ť
The San Siro giants have taken the brave step to appoint Stramaccioni â€“ a 36-year-old who will actually have three squad members who are older than him.
â€śI donâ€™t know him as a person so I wonâ€™t allow myself to judge him,â€ť the 69-year-old continued. â€śObviously you can look at his results which have been excellent.
â€śIf he says the right things then the squad should follow him, but it depends how he comes across.â€ť
