Walter Mazzarri on the performance of Kovacic, Medel and Dodo


Internazionale coach Walter Mazzarri was visibly delighted after his side eased past Sassuolo by seven goals to nil.

The Nerazzurri took an early lead with Mauro Icardi and never looked back as they move up to third in the table.

It's the second time in almost a year that Internazionale beat Sassuolo with this scoreline after their 0-7 away win on September 22 of last year.

Highlighting the individual performance of his players, the Italian coach was again full of praise for midfielders Mateo Kovacic and Gary Medel after the game.

"[Mateo] Kovacic is a great player who recently also started to focus on the defensive aspect of the game," Mazzarri told Sky Sports Italy.

"It will benefit him for the National team as well. Today he scored because he didn't wait for the ball.

"[Gary] Medel, for example, he was fantastic, we need someone like him to play our type of game.

"The full backs also did well, with Dodo and [Yuto] Nagatomo pushing forward.

"And we're a young squad, four very young players were in the side today and we could do the same against tough opposition if they all play as they did today."
