Inter confirm Mancini has another season at San Siro

May 16, 2006

ROME, May 16 (Reuters) - Inter Milan owner Massimo Moratti has ended speculation about the future of coach Roberto Mancini by saying he would remain in charge next season.

Asked if Mancini's position was safe, Moratti said: "Yes, yes, absolutely, but this year he has to do well," Inter's official website reported on Tuesday.

Inter won the Italian Cup for the second successive season but finished third in Serie A behind AC Milan and champions Juventus.

Mancini has been in charge of Inter for two seasons after joining them from Lazio.
