Walter Mazzarri: Hernanes and Kovacic can play together


Internazionale manager Walter Mazzarri says a more offensive approach is a possibility this season.

Addressing reporters before the Sassuolo match and asked if midfielders Hernanes and Mateo Kovacic can play alongside each other, the manager confirmed it is a possibility if the two players are ready to help the defensive department.

"Some say I take no risks but we're amongst some of the most offensive teams," Mazzarri said on Saturday.

"Last season we also opted for a specific type of formation but you have to look at the big picture.

"I see no problem if players help defensively, it means I can use more offensive players.

"Fans will also be happy, everyone loves quality in the team, so do I."
