Moratti sold 70 per cent of the club to Indonesian billionaire Erick Thohir yesterday for €250 million.
Galatasaray coach Mancini, who worked for Moratti as Inter coach, told Gazzetta dello Sport: "The president wanted me as a footballer, then took me as a coach. I remember when he came to my house and we watched the games on TV together on the couch.
After the sacking, there was a period of silence, then we started to talk again."
The former Manchester City manager added: "Inter has been his life since he was a kid, it is hard to stay in a house with limited powers when you were the only master. Fans can be rest assured that if Moratti has chosen Thohir, it means that for Inter there did not exist a better option."
