Ranieri: Inter still favourites
Inter Milan coach Claudio Ranieri still believes that his side are the favourites to win the Serie A title this season.
Inter have endured a dismal start to the season, losing five of their 11 games to date and fired boss Gian Piero Gasperini after just five games (three in the league). However, after appointing Ranieri, they have climbed to 15th in the table after Sunday's 1-0 victory at Siena.
And, despite being 11 points behind league leaders Juventus, Ranieri insists that the Nerazzurri should not be written off just yet.
"If I had to bet a euro on the Scudetto, I would put it on Inter because they remain my favourites," he said.
In response, Inter President Massimo Moratti was asked if he would place a one euro bet on his team to now win the Scudetto.
"I don't know [about that], but if the jackpot were one million then you would come out pretty well betting a euro,'' he said.
"I'm betting on the character of the players, which is something different, and on the pride of these lads. Also on the fact that they still have not stopped thinking positively. The bet is on that."
