Inter MIlan slump back down

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. This defeat against Cagliari does not bode well ahead of next week’s tough match against Fiorentina.
There was a lot of positivity surrounding the Italian outfit after they brought in some experienced internationals like Nemanja Vidic to strengthen the team. However, none of the new signings have been performing well for Mazzarri, which has only compounded his problems. Vidic, for example, has been giving away penalties and goals far too easily and is in danger of being dropped even at this early stage in the season. Mazzarri will have to come up with a response against Fiorentina or risk facing the wrath of Inter supporters for the next two weeks due to the international break.
Inter are already nine points behind second placed Roma. "We're sorry for the fans, who are suffering as we are. I got a few decisions wrong regarding squad rotation and didn't look at how much energy we would expend, which is crucial in the modern game. When things go badly like that it all contributes to everything else going worse. A more experienced team that goes down to 10 men becomes compact and waits for the things to blow over. We'll all learn from this lesson,” said Mazzarri, who enjoyed a brilliant spell at his previous club Napoli.
