In an interview with Italian radio station TMW Radio, Inter legend Sandro Mazzola has spoken on Antonio Conte’s post-match outburst following the loss to Dortmund.

“His words bothered me a bit, then I thought about it again and said to myself: ‘What should he say or do?’ The players have heard it, now they are all there thinking that they must show him that things are not how he thinks,” he said.

“He did it to stimulate them. At first as a player I would have taken offence to it, but then I would have said ‘now I’ll show him’ to make him understand he was wrong.”

Next he spoke on what he thinks former manager Helenio Herrera would have told him and his teammates back in the day if they were in the same situation as Inter were with them being 2-0 up at half time.

“What would Herrera have said during the interval of the game? He would have closed the locker room and then said that we would have to win and he would have got into our heads. He had to work a lot on the players’ heads.”

He then shared his views on the current state of the team.

“I like the team, they are tough but need a little more from a technical and tactical point of view. The lack of other options are a problem. What would I do in the transfer market? I would look at improving the midfield. Inter need someone who can defend and someone who can attack and control things. We need someone with quality.”
