Inter Milan fullback Yuto Nagatomo says their form turnaround is down to new coach Claudio Ranieri.

The Nerazzurri have won both their games since Ranieri took over from Gian Piero Gasperini, beating Bologna 3-1 and CSKA Moscow 3-2.

"He's a good man and a great Coach. I like him a lot. We all like him a lot," said the Japanese international.

"We played well in Moscow and are improving. It was important to win this game and we did it, so that's fine."
