Tinkerman for Nerazzuri

It's finally official. Just a few days after Moratti sack Gasperini,
Claudio Ranieri dubbed as Tinkerman has been appointed as the new manager for Inter Milan. Ranieri is widely known in football world as someone who likes to do whatever it takes for the sake of the team. And some journalist and even managers even mocking Ranieri as someone who always become bridesmaid rather than the bridegroom himself. This is because, along his career as a manager, he always unfortunate not to win any major silverware in Italy, Spain and England. With Chelsea, the best pole position he achieved was runners up behind Man Utd as the start of Roman Abramovic revolution before Mourinho came the seasons after. Then he went to Juventus after Deschamps brought the Old Lady back to Serie A and only manage to secure the top half of Serie A. He then went to Eternal City, Roma where he miss out becoming Serie A Champion in 2009/2010 after Inter, managed by Mourinho able to win the last 3 matches of the season. But one thing for sure, Ranieri is someone who able to get the best of team whenever necessary and looking at Inter conditions right now, Ranieri is the best patch up. Inter need a doctor to cure the disease and low self esteem after somewhat rough start in Serie A and in Champions League. Tinkerman has already said that he will talk a lot with Inter team as he need to motivate them to get into the right track. Ranieri always a believer in the conversational old tactics of 442 or 451 as he has shown in Juventus and Roma and also back in Chelsea days. With Inter team that boost many experienced players and not short of quality with the likes of Sneider, Milito and Forlan, Tinkerman surely able to mastermind his own ideas onto the pitch. But as people said, talk are cheap, the result is only matter in football. Moratti will surely want Inter can get back and running again in Serie A this weekend and gain more points in Champions Leagues, Tinkerman will need to do some homework to get the Treble winner of 2010 taste victory on the field again. From my perspective, the first thing Ranieri need to sort out is to get the best out of the core of Inter teams. Cambiasso need to be played in his best position, deep lying playmaker whilst Sneider need to be where he excell the most like in 2010 and during the World Cup, behind the two striker as advanced playmaker or trequesta. Inter does not have the speedy winger like Man Utd or deep depth like Man City, they also far behind to compare to all conquering Barca who have the 3 most complete midfielder in the world in Fabregas, Xavi and Iniesta added with the magician, Messi but Inter, like the one that being molded by Mourinho, have the strength in tactics and team blend. Inter suited more by playing deep, direct football with counter attack. The back four of Lucio, Maicon (if he fit) Zanetti or Chivu with the wall, Walter Samuel, once and still the best in Italy and Europe. If Ranieri able to see and manipulate this, Inter will have no problem to be the Champion of Italy and Europe once again. The hole in attacking area seems to be bigger  after Eto left but Forlan, Zarate,Milito and Pazzini still can strike fear in opponents defence. Sneider and Cambiasso have to be the space to general the midfield and with the likes of Alvarez, Obi ( youth product) . Stankovic still have some sparks in him, Nagatomo, one of the rising star last season will surely be better, Ranocchia is the future 'nesta', Thiago Motta can work excellent with Cambiasso, Coutinho need to live up to his reputations as future wonderkid, .Overall, Inter have a balance squad.Excluding bad injuries, Inter can live up the reputation under Ranieri. Good Luck for Ranieri.. Can't wait for the next Inter matches. The first 3 matches will show the impact Ranieri can give to the blue half of San Siro. 
Forza Inter.
