Inter boss Roberto Mancini says that he is not interested in selling striker Mauro Icardi despite interest from several clubs across Europe.
The likes of Real Madrid and Manchester City are thought to be monitoring the situation of the youngster, who has hit 22 goals in the league campaign last season. This is a healthy return for a player, who plays in a team that does not create much opportunities. Inter have been heavily disappointing this season and the fortunes have not improved even after their former manager Roberto Mancini came to the club.
Inter Milan slipped to a new low after a 1-1 draw against Parma. This was the second consecutive match in which they have failed to win and it asks further questions about manager Roberto Mancini.
He was the much hyped a replacement for Walter Mazzarri, who had failed to deliver after more than 18 months at the club. Mazzarri witnessed the club slip away from the Champions League places and out of Europe altogether. It looks like Mancini will be unable to get the club back into at least Europa league football for the next campaign.
Ac.Milan and Inter Milan have been sharing the San Siro stadium since 1947 but things might be changing within the next years as Ac.Milan has published a plan on constructing a new 48,000 seater stadium in an area of land which is not being used.
The Italian side has already claimed that this prospective new home for the fans of Ac.Milan would be one of the most innovative stadiums in the world which will incorporate a hotel, a sports college, restaurants, a children’s playground, green areas and a number of other things.
Roberto Mancini took over as the replacement for Walter Mazzarri back in November, but he has managed only one victory in the league since his return to Inter Milan.
The former Manchester City boss won several league titles with Inter in his first spell. Several reasons have been attributed for Inter being unable to perform at a high standard even after a managerial change and one of them is the lack of understanding to the manager’s philosophy. Mancini says that the players need to understand his requirements quickly in order to start winning matches.
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.
