Mancini Salme

Roberto Mancini spoke to the microphones of Sky following the defeat against Torino.

”I am happy with the performance as we did what we needed to – we held possession well until we reached the edge of their box. Then they stopped our movement. It is very cruel to concede in the last second but unfortunately, this is football. It felt very cruel. However, it is also true that we fell asleep at the same time. We should not have conceded a corner in the first place, and then, we marked really bad on the set piece.”

”Inter did not deserve to even draw this game. Therefore, I say it felt cruel. We need more quality in the final third and we also need to improve our movement to create spaces. But I feel we are on the right track.”

”It would have been important to start the second half of the season with a win and all we can do now is to persevere. We are unlucky with the injuries and today I had to use two of my substitutions due to injuries which reduced my options to change the team up front. I was not happy with the four forwards for what they did in the final third but the rest of the team played well. I did not start with Shaqiri because he played in the Coppa Italia and I did not want to risk him.”

”Brozovic can play in a two man or a three man midfield so we will have more options going forward”.
