After yesterday’s disappointing draw with Parma at the San Siro Roberto Mancini’s squad were back in training this morning at the Centro Sportivo Angelo Morattti as Mancini punished the players by revoking their Easter holiday.

The Nerazzurri began at 08:30 CET and were put through their paces with a strength and fitness session which lasted 50 minutes.

There were gloomy faces all around and no desire to smile or talk by the players.

Inter vice president Javier Zanetti and sporting director Piero Ausilio were there to observe this surreal silent training from the side lines.
