Mazzarri: “We could have converted two-three chances in goals”

Inter-Roma serie A

After the game, Mazzarri commented his team’s performance, the sub of Alvarez, Guarin and technology. “The group is growing and we played a great first half. We lacked the finalization, we were in one of the toughest pitches, coming here and holding the possession is what we are looking for. It’s a rebuilding year, the players understand what I want. The regret is that we could have converted two-three chances in goals.”

“If we look at what we have done since the beginning of the season, we are missing at least five points, sometimes we have been unlucky. In very few matches we got more than what we deserved, maybe at home against Fiorentina, but we dropped many points along the way, like at Genova or in some home draws.”

“At half time, Alvarez said that he had a problem, he has returned not much time ago. I changed him even after of what was planned, I was sorry for subbing him off. It was done out of caution, so he didn’t injure himself. He was doing well.”

“This is one of those years where you hit the bar and the ball doesn’t go in in the final forcing. We tied many matches that were sieges without scoring. Today in the first half we were close to the goal many time, we missed the final touch to put it in. We were playing well.”

“In the final part, I saw that Rodrigo and Mauro weren’t pressing De Rossi and Botta was more adapt to counter and play between the lines. Today he suffered the tension, he played better in other games, he created havoc. Palacio had to go deep when the ball was on the flanks, the same thing Icardi did well in the first half, but also Palacio is fast and did it in the past.”

“Guarin every now and then has some pauses, but in the last games he always made the final pass, today he wasn’t able to. It’s true that sometimes he loses the ball, but the sub for Ricky was to avoid risks. He is like that, creative, but he has some pauses. We are working in order to reduce them. He improved this year. Before I fielded him as a second striker in order not to risk, now he makes some plays. He wasn’t fortunate enough to assist, but he’s an important player.”

“I agree with every technology that can help to have more regular games and help the referee’s decision. The referee should influence the least possible, he could be helped. We develop in every sector but not in football.”

“Rolando didn’t play well only today, he’s having an excellent season. He did well on Gervinho. The market? In this year we need to evaluate the current roster, in January we started to move but the guys have to prove that they deserve the confirmation. We’ll make our choices in June.”
