Inter manager showed his restless spirit last Sunday too, after that Fiorentina smashed his side 1-4 in a San Siro clash. However, Mancini seem not to have lost any sleep over last week collapse: “It was a strange defeat, but that’s something you can expect in football. Nevertheless lads have had a good reaction, even when they were down two or three goals. With 15 points in six matches, I don’t think the last result is going to be a problem for us.”
Focusing on tomorrow’s match, former Manchester City manager showed some annoyance over the media’s questions about the system he will adopt in the Marassi clash: “You are always talking about the three or four men defense. Someone doesn’t know what to talk about. If we lose, it doesn’t depend on the system. We lose if we make mistakes or because our opponents have done better than us. You are always talking about things that are not making any difference in a football game.”
“I’m happy to play against Walter [Zenga] – Mancini told the press. He is a friend of mine and we played lot of matches, both together and against. I am happy he is finally back in Italy. Playing in Marassi is always a great honor for me as I spent there some of the most important years of my career.”
Mancini has used no diplomacy talking about the Stevan Jovetic hassle, since the Montenegrin has received a call-up from his National team, despite a minor injury: “I don’t care about the call-up. Stevan [Jovetic] is injured, otherwise he would have played tomorrow. He knows himself what is better for him. I’d prefer to work with him the next ten days to prepare better the game against Juventus”.
