Walter Mazzarri is talking again: The Inter coach was heard on Radio Marte, during Marte Sport Live. He started by commenting on the choices Prandelli has made for the World Cup. Mazzarri is happy for Lorenzo Insigne: “I’m very happy for Insigne, his skills have never been questioned. I made him debut in the top flight with Livorno when he was 19 years old. Lorenzo is a great professional, he’s a serious guy, has important talent but he has also improved. Already with me he always played, and he improved further this year after a great season. His call for the World Cup is a success for all those who believed in him, Santoro was the first when everyone was skeptical. I’m proud to have participated in his development.” The same goes for the Inter defender Andrea Ranocchia, called as a reserve: “He’s still a young player, he also experienced a particular moment. It was not a surprising call, I’m glad that he at least gets to go.” Christian Maggio instead was excluded: “I’m sorry, you know the story of Christian, I am bound to him both humanly and as a professional. He probably paid for the bad injury he had recently, I’m really sorry, it definitely punished him. Prandelli has made his choices, as it should be, the guys are in better shape from the athletic point of view. It’s a pity, because Maggio is a very important player, he could have done very well.”

On the prospects for next season with Inter Mazzarri announces: “Next year will be the beginning of a cycle, like the one that was closed this year with the departure of some key players. But I prefer to wait for the transfers before I talk about it. Scudetto in 2015? The numbers speak for themselves this season, the first three have proven to be superior and have corporate situations which can only make them better. We will definitely be protagonists.”

In conclusion, a message to the city of Naples: “Going back as a tourist? I’d do it because I never hade the chance to see it as I always worked hard. I want to go back, however, because it is a beautiful city and it has been an important step in my career.” Mazzarri has received an award for bringing Napoli to Europe for four consecutive years:” I’m glad to have helped lead this team in Europe, they needed it. The qualification of Inter is also important. With these four years, the club now has a solid foundation for the future.”
