Inter’s coach Walter Mazzarri spoke to the press after the important with at Stadio Franchi, praising him team but also reprehending them for some mistakes.
“We could have lost two points, against a strong team like Fiorentina on their pitch, like it happened in the past and that’s why we have to improve in some moments. They are strong on set pieces, we gifted them of some corners and this could cost us the victory. We are fine, we do a football I like and we did it for most part of the game.”
“Icardi scored, then we remained in 10 and a half men because he still doesn’t have the condition and he didn’t run in the final part. After ten minutes, he was already gassed. He’s a great player, he’ll have a great future if he understand some things. He must try harder and more. I’m referring only to the trainings, in the private life, the players can do whatever they want, even though I’m convince that you need a good and exemplar lifestyle to become a champion, like for example Diego Milito.”
“Some things of ours are are absurd, on a set piece in our favour, we allowed them to do a 3 on 1 counter, but luckily they missed the final pass. We need to grow, playing well doesn’t mean giving away this chances. The first half was good and if we could finish some chances, we would have finished with a larger result and suffer less.”
“I haven’t commented on the referee for weeks. Do it yourselves.”
“Hernanes can handle the pressure. We have young players in the roster, you need players suitable for certain levels. They must have the right serenity. We dropped many points at home. In our football, games can be won even by putting a good ball off a corner kick, like it happened against Sassuolo.”
“We believe that we can win every game and we try to express our football on every pitch. We played a good game and luckily the win arrived. Fiorentina had to be faced this way. This is the football I’d always like to play.”
“Palacio found back the right sharpness. He runs more than a midfielders, if everybody ran like him, we would never be in trouble.”
