Corriere dello Sport reports that Ausilio was present at the pre-training meeting Mazzarri held with the players yesterday.
“He knows that the expulsion of Nagatomo conditioned the match, but to not give the team an excuse, and not throw the blame on the Japanese player he stressed two things; first, that Inter went down 2-1 when Cossu was still on the sideline, meaning there was no man-advantage for Cagliari. And second, that in the play that Inter went down 4-1, there were four Sardinian players present defended by seven of Inter,” writes the paper.
According to the manager, being outnumbered was not the only problem. There was the issue of preparation and fatigue. “There was a problem of preparation according to Mazzarri because everyone ran little and poorly on Sunday. Even those who had not played against Atalanta, and Nagatomo and Hernanes. Mazzarri asked to start over immediately against Qarabag.”
