Inter Milan coach Andrea Stramaccioni insists he can handle expectations around the club.

The Nerazzurri Coach has been under pressure in 2013 after winning just one of the last seven rounds, but was given a vote of confidence by president Massimo Moratti this week.

"The President once again showed confidence and respect towards both me and the squad. We are all aware that we're fighting for an important objective and will be to the end," said the Coach in his Press conference.

"We are going through a strange period and must improve in terms of our approach to the games. Recent performances have been unsatisfying, but we are working to improve our performances and above all results.

"Milan are having a good season and closing on us, so we will play with a great deal at stake in the Derby."
