Inter Milan coach Claudio Ranieri has taken a swipe at Thiago Motta over his January move to PSG.

Ranieri admits he never wanted to see the midfielder sold.

"We all said Thiago Motta wouldn't go, but he rang the President every day and cried that he wanted to leave, so he wasn't going to be of any use to us. He did play against Napoli and gave away a penalty, so some critics said he did it on purpose," revealed Ranieri.
