Walter Mazzarri on the win, injuries and the M'Vila-Medel partnership


Internazionale coach Walter Mazzarri says the three points against Qarabag FK are very important ahead of Sunday's game against Fiorentina.

The Nerazzurri needed to bounce back from the shock home defeat against Cagliari and goals from Danilo D'Ambrosio and Mauro Icardi made sure that they will approach Sunday's game with optimism.

"In today's game all matches are equal in terms of intensity," Mazzarri said during his press conference.

"I had to rest a number of players, like Osvaldo and Palacio, I just didn't feel like taking any risks.

"We'll check [Hernanes and Icardi] tomorrow, we'll assess them and decide who will be in the squad for the Fiorentina game."

Asked if he will rotate players on the October 23 game against St. Etienne, the manager said: "We have to try and win all games, else it's a disaster.

"We are forced to win, let's not forget that winning is everything when you're in our position although yes, if we do qualify early I might hand a debut to a number of young players.

"I liked M'Vila and Medel did well too, we didn't struggle anymore after he came on and we managed to put the game to bed.

"Medel and M'Vila can play alongside each other, we're slowly get there."
