When asked if he would like to see Stramaccioni given the job on a permanent basis, Zanetti was unequivocal in his response.
“Yes, we’re working well together and there’s great enthusiasm in training,” he told the Inter TV channel.
“But it’s only right that it should be the president (Massimo Moratti) and the club that decide what is best, because Inter must start aiming for the top targets again.”
Zanetti is confident Stramaccioni has it in him to bring the glory days back to the club.
“He’s good, he came in and was humble and honest from the start,” the veteran Argentine said.
“He has very clear ideas, he likes a certain brand of football and we’ve all bought into it.
“Hopefully we’ll be able to end the season as best we can and Andrea can continue. These months will just be the start of a long coaching career for him.
“It’s true that he doesn’t have much experience working with first teams, but from day one he came across as a talented coach. He’s careful about all the small details and he’s very galvanising.”
Strong words of support from the Inter captain. When Stramaccioni was hired I admit I was worried how the senior players would take to him, especially after seeing the problems that Andre Villas-Boas had at Chelsea this year with their senior players.
But is seems that the senior players like Zenetti have bought into Stramaccioni’s philosophy and that is a big reason why the Nerazzurri are undefeated under the young coach.
Have you seen enough from Stramaccioni to hire him as Inter’s manager for next season or do you think Inter should go looking for a more experienced coach this summer?
