Inter impress boss Stramaccioni

Inter boss Andrea Stramaccioni was delighted with the win at Pescara – but was keen to keep his feet on the ground.

A much-changed Nerazzurri started their Serie A campaign last night with a comfortable 3-0 win at the Stadio Adriatico.

“It was a good start, but we know that we still need to improve in certain areas,” the former Roma youth team tactician noted.

“It's good that we've followed up Thursday's performance in the Europa League with another decent one tonight.

“A team that takes a 2-0 lead into the dressing room at half-time at a difficult ground is a sign of strength.”

Not only was the young Coach happy with the result, but he was delighted with the way it was manufactured.

“Our quality comes through when we move the ball around,” he added. “It was a good start but there's a long way to go. We have to keep our feet on the ground.”

Amongst the new faces in the Inter line-up was Antonio Cassano, the signing from Milan who played close to 70 minutes.

“I decided that he would be in the starting XI after the first training session. I wanted to play with two strikers and an attacking midfielder.

“He repaid my faith with his performance.”
