by admin

Inter Milan coach Walter Mazzarri has confirmed that he will remain as the manager of the club next season as well. There have been widespread reports that he will be sacked as the Inter Milan manager after failing to get the club into the top three of the table. Only the top three teams that qualified for the Champions League next season. This is very important for a club like Inter Milan with its rich European heritage. The club has won two European trophies in its illustrious history, but they have not been in the competition for the last two years.

After the change in ownership, the club provided Mazzarri with significant funds over the course of the first two transfer windows in order to strengthen the team. However, it has not worked according to plan after a poor second half of the season led the club into finishing fifth in the table. Even more disappointing for the club was the fact that they were a massive 18 points behind the third placed Napoli. Despite this, Mazzarri looks set to continue as the manager after the coach himself confirmed the same.

The club has also been voicing the same over the last few weeks, but reports about his position continue to float around.

“I’m definitely staying because I have a contract. I’ve already spoken about my contract with (technical director Piero) Ausilio, so it’s pointless that we continue to talk about it. I have a contract at Inter. I had to work with a contract that was running out before at Napoli and I did well there. The important thing is there’s great respect between us. I’m very happy with the phone call that came after the win against Lazio. Thohir called me, happy to have qualified for Europe,” said Mazzarri.

Inter Milan’s problems under Walter Mazzarri continued after the team failed to win for a third straight match. Despite this disappointing result, Mazzarri claimed that the players should remain positive in order to get success. It was a disappointing evening for the club after they were leading 2-0 at half-time, but they conceded two goals in the second half only get a point against Livorno. Considering that this match was against the relegation threatened team, Inter Milan have dropped more praise response as they are struggling to even qualify for the Europa league.

Mazzarri was expected to improve the fortunes of the team dramatically after they have been struggling in recent years under the managerial reins of Claudio Ranieri and Andrea Stramaccioni. However, the former Napoli manager has failed to keep up the form of the first half of the season. He says that this has been one of the years where everything seems to go against them. According to him, it is imperative that the players stayed positive during such troubles and only then they can take advantage of the good times.

Inter have slipped three points behind Fiorentina in the fourth place with seven matches remaining in the campaign. The club’s last win was against Hellas Verona in the middle of March.

“Those who saw the match realise that it’s one of those years. We just need look at it in a certain way. We need to take the positives from the game. My players showed a lot of character until, perhaps unconsciously, they thought that the game was over. Livorno were given a new lease of life after their first goal. We should have put the game to bed at 2-0 and we missed two or three big chances at 2-1,” said the manager, whose team next take on Bologna at home.

Inter Milan missed an opportunity to close the gap on the title rivals after 0-0 draw with Roma at the Stadio Olimpico. After the match, Walter Mazzarri was disappointed man, as he felt that three phones were there for the taking against a very good Roma team. Rudi Garcia’s men are fighting for the title along with Juventus, although they are several points behind the table leaders. Despite playing against one of the top teams in the division, Inter Milan created a lot of opportunities over the course of the 90 minutes.

However, both teams were unable to take their chances as it finished a disappointing stalemate. Mazzarri said that Inter Milan had come in the best tactics and players, but they simply were unable to get the crucial three points due to the lack of killer instinct in front of goal. The dropped points mean that Inter continue to struggle in a bid to seal the final Champions League spot. It also means that they have failed to win for the last two matches after their disappointing 1-1 draw with Cagliari last weekend.

Napoli occupy the final Champions League qualifying spot with 52 points, while Inter are a long way off the pace at 41 points in the fifth place. There are only a few matches remaining in the season for Inter to overtake Napoli.

“In the second half we were tired, as we had used up a lot of energy, but still played very well. There was the risk of defeat and we did see that risk from close range. After the break they changed their attitude and we lost in intensity. We moved well on the wings and forced Roma to work hard, causing them problems and limiting their scope. The credit for making Roma play badly is down to Inter,” said Mazzarri.

Inter Milan recently brought an end to a disastrous run of form, which saw them go without a win in the last six matches. Prior to this current, Inter had a 1-0 win over archrivals AC Milan at the San Siro. However, this poor run of form has put them out of contention for the top three positions, which will give them the chance to get back to the Champions league. The club finds itself a massive 11 points behind third placed on Napoli with only just over 10 matches remaining in the campaign.

However, manager Walter Mazzarri was more than satisfied to have just completed the winless run, which threatened to put the club out of Europa league contention. Defender Walter Samuel scored the only goal of the match, as Inter managed to get this victory. Mazzarri said after the match that every opponent and has become difficult in the Italian league right now. Hence, he is under no illusion that this was a tough match for his team, but they came out successful at the end of the 90 minutes. Mazzarri also praised Samuel, who scored the winning goal. The 35-year-old is one of the few members left from the Champions League winning squad of 2010.

“We finally broke the spell. We handed a good performance but it was tough as Sassuolo are a good side. Every rival is difficult and it took us a while to break the deadlock. The important thing was that we were able to return to victory. Samuel should be an example to everyone in the team. He is an outstanding player, who has been many trophies in his career. He showed a lot of determination and hunger,” said Mazzarri to the club’s official site.

Inter Milan’s next match will be a tough away trip to Fiorentina.
