After Inter’s lackluster performance in their preseason friendly against AEK Athens, coach Roberto Mancini spoke to Premium Sport:

“It is hard to change a lot in three days time. We were better in the second half, and our back line have only played three matches together.  We lacked speed, but this will take time to build up. We will have to improve this at the start of the campaign. I am sorry for Kovacic. Unfortunately we have to follow the rules of Uefa’s Financial Fair Play.  This does not mean that we will not have a strong team.  We are all disappointed, from the President to the players, but we had to make sacrifices. Kovacic and Shaqiri left for the same reason, and now we have to focus on different matters.  Since we sacrificed two important players, we will be able to bring in players in the positions we are currently lacking. Midfielders and fullbacks? We will see…”
