Inter Milan is planning to stick with manager Claudio Ranieri until the end of the season despite having won just one of its past 10 Serie A matches.
Inter lost 2-0 at Juventus in "Italy's Derby" on Sunday, but Inter president Massimo Moratti said on Monday that "I think that Claudio Ranieri will remain until the end of the season."
Inter has slipped to eighth place, 22 points behind league leader and crosstown rival AC Milan.
Ranieri was hired in September to replace Gian Piero Gasperini but his tenure has been marred by injuries and Inter's inability to overcome the departure of Samuel Eto'o.
Inter has lost 12 league matches, one short of the club low established in 1947-48.
