Walter Mazzarri: Jonathan or Campagnaro will play from the start


Internazionale coach Walter Mazzarri insists his team will not focus entirely on the Italian Serie A this season.

The Nerazzurri face a tricky trip to Ukraine on Thursday evening and the Italian is fully aware of the strength of Ukrainian sides.

"Ukrainian teams are difficult to play against," Mazzarri said on Thursday.

"I lost against Dnipro [Dnipropetrovsk] when at Napoli and against Metalist when at Sampdoria, they play nice football so we have to be careful.

"Dnipro are in excellent physical shape, they are strong, aggressive but I'm looking forward to facing them. On Sunday we did well but it's now time to be consistent.

"Rotation? It's normal to think about rotation when you play every three days. Jonathan and [Hugo] Campagnaro? They are fit, one of them will start but not both of them because they are not ready for the full 90 minutes."

After a very good start to the season Internazionale are amongst many favourites to win the Scudetto but the manager believes they will be focused on the Europa League and Italian Cup as well.

"We try to do our best in all three competitions," added Mazzarri.

"We will see in the end what we were capable of achieving.

"Our squad is deep enough to reach the end of all competitions, to go as far as we can."
