Andrea Ranocchia: The Cagliari defeat is not Mazzarri's fault


Internazionale captain Andrea Ranocchia says coach Walter Mazzarri should not be held responsible for Sunday's heavy defeat against Cagliari.

The Nerazzurri were humiliated by Zdenek Zeman's side but the 26-year-old insists that the only way to forget the 4-1 defeat is to work hard and look forward to upcoming fixtures with optimism.

"Cagliari were full of running, they ran a lot I must say," Ranocchia told Mediaset show 'Tiki Taka - Il calcio รจ il nostro gioco'.

"We were maybe tired, especially after the away game against Dinamo Kiev. I don't know why they ran more than we did and of course we struggled after the red card.

"But I wouldn't say it's Mazzarri's fault, we are all to blame because we all made mistakes. If we are to reach our objectives we are to move on, all of us.

"We met today to understand what went wrong and how we can correct our mistakes. We are now focused on the Qarabag game, we have to look forward with optimism."
