Committed Mancini targets title

Reports had suggested Mancini, back for his second stint at the club following spells with Manchester City and Galatasaray, could quit the San Siro if Inter failed to qualify for Europe next season.

Inter are ninth in Serie A, 23 points behind leaders Juventus but only 10 behind Napoli in the third and last Champions League qualifying spot.

But Mancini is confident the club,??who last won the Italian title in their treble-winning season of 2010, will be back to challenge for the Scudetto – and under his stewardship.

“There is always lots of talk,” said Mancini when asked about his future.

“For now all I’m thinking about is building a strong future at the club.

???We are working now to guarantee results at the end of this term but I’m confident Inter next year will be fighting for the title.”

???I think the teams ahead of us have been working together for longer. This can make the difference, but it???s just a matter of time for us.”
