Inter Milan boss Massimo Moratti has denied speculation that Coach Roberto Mancini's job is in danger. Jose Mourinho's departure from Chelsea and disclosure that he might like to learn Italian -- he already speaks Portuguese, Spanish, French and English -- prompted speculation that he might be in line to replace Mancini at the Italian champions.
"I don't know whether that kind of talk has angered Mancini, but that's probably the least of his worries," said Moratti after Inter's 3-0 win over Sampdoria in midweek Serie A action.
Next up for the Nerazzurri is Roma in a battle of Serie A's first-place teams. "We played well against Samp yesterday," said Moratti, "but Roma will be a completely different game. It won't be easy, but we are hoping to put in a good performance. We are treating it like any other game and going out for three points."
