Inter Milan’s new manager Walter Mazzarri has said that he is extremely satisfied with what he has been seeing in the pre-season friendly matches so far. Mazzarri was recently appointed as the replacement for Andrea Stramaccioni, who paid a huge price for the club finishing in the 10th position last season. The former youth team coach was sacked by the club, and the former Napoli manager has been installed in his place. Immediately after taking over, Mazzarri said that he does not want people to have any expectations from him.
Many expected Inter to once again start challenging for the title, but Mazzarri has said that he has a huge rebuilding job on his hands. The club has already made some important signings in several areas of the pitch. This has worked to the benefit of the team after they have been in a decent run of form throughout the pre-season. After the recent 1-1 draw with German club Hamburg, Mazzarri has said that he is pleased with the performance of his players so far. However, returning back into the top three positions in the league is going to be extremely difficult for the club.
There are several clubs far stronger than Inter Milan like Napoli, Fiorentina, and Roma.
“In all honesty, it went better than expected. I am happy with the way this group is growing. Obviously there were a few hiccups that we will correct, but if we continue like this then I am happy with our daily progress. At this time the result is worth only a certain amount, as the important thing was the strong performance, which was not easy in the circumstances, as Hamburg cut in from the wings and push forward with four players,” said Mazzarri.
The club will be facing Chelsea in the next match.
