The Inter Milan manager Andrea Stramaccioni is currently under a lot of pressure after recent results in all competitions, which has left him facing the sack. Inter Milan have not only fallen behind the likes of AC Milan in the race for the top three positions, but they are also on the verge of being eliminated from the Europa league as well. The 3-0 defeat against Tottenham in the first leg of the Europa league encounter between the two teams has all but confirmed the exit from the competition. The return leg will be taking place at the San Siro, but not many are giving the 2010 Champions League winners hope.
The 37-year-old has always enjoyed a special relationship with the Inter Milan President Massimo Moratti. The team has managed just three wins in the last 12 league matches. This abysmal run of form has meant that they have not only been caught up by their arch rivals AC Milan, but Massimiliano Allegri’s men have also overtaken them as well. Inter are currently in the fifth position – five points behind the rivals Milan, who occupy the third position. Inter Milan were set the objective of finishing in the top three in the qualify for the Champions League season. There have been rumours that Stramaccioni might lose his job, but the 37-year-old has said that he does not worry about it.
“I think that my work will be judged at the end of the season and not now. I’ve always had the president’s (Massimo Moratti) backing, but he is in charge and can make whatever decisions he wants. My future will be decided by the results at the end of the campaign, not by one game. I never give up, I’m focused and giving everything that I have,” said the former youth team manager.
