By Football Italian staff Filippo Baldini has admitted that he “cannot be surprised” by the transfer window’s success but is pleased with the way the club is being run.
The Italian general manager is delighted with the results so far this transfer window, especially after spending three seasons at the helm of the club.
However, he admits that his task will be more difficult if he is in charge of an Inter squad with a new coach, new sporting director and a new sporting board.
“I have to take my job seriously, so I will be in a good mood if I succeed,” Baldini told Radio SpA.
“It will be my job to try and do my best to create a successful team and build an experience for the future.”
The appointment of Carlo Ancelotti as Inter’s new boss has been a huge coup for the club, who were one of the first clubs to be linked with the Italian international.
However the former Sampdoria and Napoli coach has struggled to turn things around at the club after the sacking of Carlo Cassano, with Ancelotta leaving just six months into his new job.
“He was a great coach, he is an experienced coach and has a good understanding of the game,” Baldi said.
“But I cannot be surprised if he will not manage to turn it around.”
As far as I know, there is nothing more important than a coach and he will have a very tough task.
“A lot of people have said he has lost his way, that he is not going to win games, that Inter are not going anywhere.”
We will have to work hard to find solutions and the coach needs to be patient.
“In terms of the transfer market, we are not making any big decisions yet.”
If we are going to sign someone from abroad, we need to decide what will work for us, and I have to give a fair assessment of all the possibilities.
“There are many players that I want to sign, but it is going to be up to the players themselves to decide.”© ESPN Sports Media Ltd.
