As each day passes by and the January transfer window edges closer and closer, more and more rumors start to emerge linking certain players with a number of different clubs around the world, some of those rumors are shut down and disappear soon while others continue being spread around and one of those is Inter Milan being interested in signing Liverpool’s Glen Johnson and Fabio Borini.
Inter Milan recently brought back Roberto Mancini for a second spell at the club in order to replace Walter Mazzarri, who was sacked just into the international break.
Mancini’s return to the San Siro has been marked with one of the games of the campaign. Their match against archrivals AC Milan on Sunday night was seen as a major chance for Mancini to get confidence back into the team.
Inter Milan slumped to yet another poor defeat in the league after a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Cagliari. This forced the manager, Walter Mazzarri, to issue an apology to the fans. Many questioned the club’s decision to offer Mazzarri a new contract extension in the summer despite having performed poorly last season. The club failed to achieve its ambition of reaching the top three once again. It looks like another poor season beckons for the 2010 European champions. They have managed just two victories after six matches the season.
Inter Milan begin their European campaign this season with a match against Dnipro. After having competed in the Champions League for several seasons, Inter have been going through a troubled spell where they have been unable to qualify for this Premier competition. Instead, they will once again be playing in the Europa League on Thursday nights. Inter come the back of a very good 7-0 thrashing of Sassuolo. This will give them a lot of confidence, but Walter Mazzarri will be aware that they had beaten Sassuolo by a similar score last season only to end up finishing fifth in the league.
Inter Milan’s opening match of the next season is against Torino, a club that concluded the previous campaign sitting on the 7th spot but the Italian manager stated his opinion concerning the 1st match of the campaign as he went on saying that it will be a tough team and place to perform well against.
In a move that largely appears to provide the players and the manager with confidence going into the new campaign, Inter Milan have announced that the manager Walter Mazzarri has signed a one-year extension to his contract. The former Napoli manager came to the San Siro on a two-year contract. He was widely expected to leave the club back into the Champions League in his first season, but that has proved very difficult indeed. Still, there has been improvement from Inter in every area of the pitch.
Inter Milan manager Walter Mazzarri has revealed that he will be looking to strengthen the team primarily on the defensive midfield position. Inter come on the back of a very disappointing season in which they once again failed to qualify for the Champions League. However, they are expected to strengthen the team in several areas of the pitch in order to finally return to the top European competition. They have already secure the signing of Nemanja Vidic from Manchester United on a free transfer. They have also been linked with the likes of Fernando Torres as well.
Inter Milan defender Jonathan has stated that the club should not part company with manager Walter Mazzarri. The manager came from Napoli with a reputation of achieving a lot of success with limited funds at his disposal. Things were extremely rosy in the first half of the season when Inter looked like returning back to Champions League football and even returning to the top of the table. However, the second half of the season has been extremely poor, as the club has been drawing their way to the finish. Prior to the final game of the season, Inter look set to finish in the fifth place.
Inter Milan have been consistently on the decline for the last few years and this has been the miss out on aspects like Champions League football last year. In fact, they had no form of European football this season after finishing at a lowly ninth last season.
This year also proves to be yet another disappointment for the team, as they are set to miss out on Champions League. However, there is an opportunity for Inter to reach the Europa league and this is very important for the club according to defender Andrea Ranocchia.
Inter Milan recently returned to winning ways after a 1-0 win over Torino, which helped boost the chances of catching Napoli in the table. There still remains a significant points difference between Inter Milan and Walter Mazzarri’s previous club, but the manager says that it is still quite conceivable that the club finished in the top three.
