Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti admits new coach Claudio Ranieri has exceeded expectations.

The President answered questions from journalists outside the Saras offices in Milan after the new Coach picked up two consecutive victories against Bologna and CSKA Moscow.

"Ranieri started well, really above and beyond expectations," smiled Moratti a week after firing Gian Piero Gasperini.

"He took the team in hand, both in psychological and tactical terms. It was not an easy thing to do. It's going very well and the first two results are very important for us."
