Mazzarri: 'Inter missing eight points'

Walter Mazzarri continued his protest against referees and claimed Inter “are missing eight points” this season.

The Coach spoke to Sky Sport Italia at a book launch in Biella today after a 1-1 draw with Cagliari.

“It’s not a great Monday, as I am not happy with the result,” said Mazzarri. “It’s not a defeat, but we thought that we did enough to deserve the three points.

“We struggled in the first half, partly thanks to Cagliari’s performance, but did our best in the second. Unfortunately it all went wrong for us again and it’s not the first time. I’d say we are missing seven or eight points.

“Of course there are regrets. At times we struggle to break the deadlock at home against tight teams. It has happened that we play well, but – as yesterday – are not lucky.”

Pressed on whether he was referring to refereeing errors, Mazzarri shrugged off the question.

I already spoke about it yesterday, we are unlucky. Don’t make me say any more.”

Inter face Roma in a fiery encounter on Saturday night, so what does Mazzarri make of Rudi Garcia?

“He is doing very well in his first year in Italy. I don’t know him personally, but I like the way he comes across. It’s good for our football to have someone like him.

“The club has also worked well and is strong. We’ll try to prepare as best we can for a fascinating fixture.”
