Ranieri: Inter Milan have the DNA of winners

Claudio Ranieri is delighted taking charge of Inter Milan after his appointment was confirmed yesterday.

The former Chelsea, Parma, Juventus and Roma coach was drafted in yesterday on a two-year contract after Gian Piero Gasperini's dismissal.

"I am very proud to be here and was very happy to receive President Massimo Moratti's call," Ranieri told Inter Channel as he took charge of his first training session.

"I had a very affectionate meeting with Moratti today. We first met when he was not yet President of Inter and I was at San Siro to watch Milan-Inter."

Ranieri was called after Gasperini failed to win a single match in charge, losing three and drawing one between the Italian Super Cup, Serie A and Champions League.

"I always try to do my best for the team I am working for. When you marry a cause that is what happens, there is total commitment," smiled the lifelong Roma fan.

"Inter are the side we all saw in these last few weeks, as it's not a good time for them. There were injuries and bad luck, but I am convinced this team has the DNA to get back to winning ways and find self-belief."

It is also thought that Ranieri will shelve Gasperini's tactical experiments and especially the three-man defence.

"I believe there are different types of Coaches. I am one who does not believe there is a single winning system, but rather winning players with the rapport created between Coach and squad to rediscover success."
