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.
