Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has likened coach Walter Mazzarri to former player Paul Ince.
Mazzarri is already a fans' favourite.
"And so he should have - he works as hard as any player out on the pitch and he's got talent to boot," said Moratti.
"In that sense he reminds me of Paul Ince. It doesn't matter how long you stay, and Ince was only here for a year and a half, there are certain individuals who stick in your mind as great Interisti because they're great people.
"The same goes for Mazzarri. He's a hard worker who knows exactly what he's doing and how to deal with the players and everyone else at the club."
