Moratti backing for Mancini

Inter President Massimo Moratti has given coach Roberto Mancini a vote of confidence ahead of Saturday's crucial game at Lazio.

A 2-1 defeat against Juventus last weekend allowed the league leaders' main Scudetto rivals Roma to reduce the gap at the top to four points with eight games remaining.

Despite the setback, Moratti has reiterated he will not be make any coaching changes this summer, despite persistent rumours linking former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho to the hotseat.

"I was not furious about the defeat. I continue to believe that this is a winning group. Mancini should be calm, as I do not have any planned meetings with Mourinho," Moratti said.

Earlier this month, Mancini announced his decision to part company with the Nerazzurri at the end of the season, following their elimination from the UEFA Champions League, only to reconsider his position 24 hours later.
