Roberto Mancini deserves credit for building a tough and quality Inter side, according to Giovanni Trapattoni.
Speaking in an interview with Tuttosport, the veteran Coach praised Mancio for finding a good balance to his squad with his summer signings.
"Mancini is experienced and has many merits,” said the 76-year-old.
“The difficulties he had last year are proving to be a strength. He got an idea of the squad and then asked for the players he needed on the transfer market.
“He isn’t a fool, he went to Europe and expanded his knowledge.
“He has built a physical team because here, more than anywhere else, you need tough people.
“There are players at Inter that will decide a match in one move, but having players with a strong and competitive spirit is crucial.
"Jovetic can score, but also knows how to play for his teammates. He’s a player of international quality.
“He’s someone who makes the difference, not only for Inter but for the whole league.”
