Mazzarri cool ahead of Napoli return

Coach Walter Mazzarri is not worried by the prospect of taking Inter to former club Napoli at the weekend.

The latter joined the Nerazzurri this summer after refusing to sign a new deal at the Stadio San Paolo.

“I've been coaching for a long time,” he told Sky Sport Italia. “I know that my job is to focus entirely on getting my players ready during the week.

“I'm the Coach of Inter now so I'm only thinking about that. I've looked at the mistakes we made in the last game, I haven't thought about anything else yet.

“I expect I'll feel something when I go up the steps to the pitch – after all I spent four intense years there and you can't erase that – but at the moment I'm just concentrating on solving the problems my team might have.

“After the game on Sunday against Parma, I told the lads that we'd done some things very well but also got lots of things wrong.

“We've tried to understand that and work on our approach to the game, our mentality when we take to the field.”

Inter are currently fourth in the table, four points adrift of third-placed Napoli who are now bossed by former Beneamata tactician Rafael Benitez.
