Roberto Mancini

After the disappointing draw against Carpi, Inter coach Roberto Mancini was interviewed by RAI and commented on the performance of his team: “It was not a great match. We knew it would be difficult, Carpi came here to play tight defense and counter-attack. We almost never suffered, we had great chances to make it 2-0 and we didn’t succeed. Unfortunately, this is football, and when this happens you run the risk of not winning. We’re missing too many goal scoring chances, in some matches it can be enough to end up with 1-0, today it wasn’t that way. We had two sensational opportunities in the second-half which we didn’t exploit. An attacker? At the moment we can’t do anything, if Guarin will be sold we will sit down and evaluate what’s┬áthe best solution.”

“It wasn’t a game of counter-attacks, when we changed formation we didn’t risk anything. We had many opportunities, we failed to take advantage of them… We have always suffered in the final minutes, had it happened earlier, maybe we would have had time to recover. If we don’t have income we can’t go for other purchases. If, as it seems, Guarin will go to China, then we will assess whether it will be better to get a midfielder or a striker. Juventus? We will try to win to reach the final.”
