Ex-Inter Milan president Moratti: Thohir needs a winning team

Former Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti admits his successor Erick Thohir needs some positive results.

The Nerazzurri battled to a 2-2 draw with Napoli on Sunday to ease the pressure on coach Walter Mazzarri.

Moratti said: "Thohir is having to put out fires. He is suffering and worries about how fans see things. Football is cruel and pragmatic, it always depends on results and the next game is the one that counts.

"He will stay for as long as the project will be all right, but if this feeling should fail I can see trouble."

Moratti was asked if Mazzarri would've been sacked if he was still president.

"I am not the right example, I have sacked a coach two days after he won the championship. You have to have confidence, they can pick up good results."
