Thohir has 'confidence' in Mazzarri

Inter owner Erick Thohir has insisted that he has ‘confidence’ in Coach Walter Mazzarri.

Reports in the Italian Press earlier this week suggested that the Indonesia tycoon would sack the tactician should they fail to qualify for Europe next season.

However, the San Siro side’s chief has claimed that the former Napoli boss will be given time to achieve their collective goals.

“Basically, I wanted to offer him my support, as I've said before,” Thohir told reporters at Milan’s Linate airport.

“At the end of the season we will review the players and the Coach together to build Inter's future and that means preparing for next season, keeping in mind the World Cup and being ready for the tour to America.

“If I didn't have confidence in him, I would have let him go a couple of months ago.”

The business man then commented on his reaction to Monday’s draw with Livorno.

“The players need to learn from the mistakes they made against Livorno, we need to get our focus back on the game because we still have matches to play.

“The positive thing is that we got a point. I always say we need points, and we'll see. We have another match tomorrow and we're already under pressure.”
