‘Strama must stay calm’

Renzo Ulivieri has reflected that Andrea Stramaccioni’s best approach after being sacked by Inter is to remain calm.

The 37-year-old was relieved of his managerial duties at Inter last week after a difficult 2012-13 campaign left the club in mid-table.

For current President of the Italian Football Managers’ Association, now is the time for a cool head.

“The most important thing that Stramaccioni must do now after the sacking is to stay calm,” Ulivieri told reporters today.

“It is something that can sometimes happen, it is a difficult situation, he should not feel guilty, responsible.

“The important thing is for him to start again, because he has the ability and the knowledge, the experience and the potential to do so.”

Walter Mazzarri is Stramaccioni’s replacement at San Siro.

“Mazzarri has a particular feature in that since he began with Acireale through to moving to the Inter bench, he has not missed a single year.

“I believe that he will not go wrong this year. He enters a difficult environment to reconstruct the club, which is a difficult task to do well, but Mazzarri in difficult challenges is exalted.”
