'Dear President, we asked for a strong man in the club... nothing. We asked for clarity... Nothing’. So said the words on a banner held in the Curva Nord by Inter fans. After a 2-2 draw with Catania extended their winless run to seven games and with the Nerazzurri laying 7th in Serie A, what has gone wrong at Italy’s second biggest club?

Claudio Ranieri's tenure as Inter Milan's Coach seems to be drawing to an end as the Nerazzurri fell to its fifth loss in its last six Serie A games.

The former Giallorossi boss fumed ‘We cannot go on like this.
