Maniche put pen to paper on a contract today after undergoing his medical, spoke with Roberto Mancini and gave his first interview with Inter Channel.
"I knew him as a great player, now I will get to know him as a Coach. I am at his complete disposal.
"Inter want to win the Champions League and with this squad we have the chance to do really well. It will be a great challenge against Liverpool, but we aim to win so we can go as far as possible."
