Not the best of weeks for Claudio Ranieri at Inter as his team suffered yet another loss, this time to lowly Novara. The defeat capped of a miserable run of results for the Nerazzurri which has seen them claim just one point in their last four fixtures.

The Argentinian’s four-step sent him into a comic book group that features ‘the little plane’, Vincenzo Montella, twinkle-toes Christian Vieri, and ‘The Wonder Boy’ Alexis Sanchez. The sextuplet is completed by Alberto Gilardino, who should be nicknamed [...]
