Inter chief angered by 4-1 defeat

Inter boss Andrea Stramaccioni has admitted that President Massimo Moratti was left unimpressed by the 4-1 loss at Fiorentina.

“The President is angry and regretful as we all are and rightly so,” the tactician told Sky Sport Italia on Monday.

“I still haven’t had the chance to analyse this collapse with my players. Today is another day and the Inter we saw yesterday wasn’t the real one.

“Now we have two important challenges coming up and we need to put yesterday’s match behind us. I’ve never backed down.

“Our thoughts are on getting a result in Romania and winning the derby.”

Stramaccioni has taken responsibility for the reverse, but he maintains that the Europa League game against Cluj had an effect.

“I think I made a mistake in evaluating my players’ energies,” he noted. “We knew that the Europa League would be an exhausting competition, but we didn’t think we would have paid for it to such an extent.

“I made a mistake in thinking we could utilise the same players over these three games.”

Inter have been struggling of late and just two wins from their last nine League games have led to some questions about Stramaccioni’s job.

“My future is Inter’s future,” he added. “We’re always being judged and what matters most is immediately turning things around.”

Last Wednesday, former Inter player and present Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone claimed that he would one day Coach the Beneamata.
