Walter Mazzarri: An important point to qualify from the group


Internazionale coach Walter Mazzarri says the St. Etienne draw is an important step to the next round of the Europa League.

Summer signing Nemanja Vidic's disastrous start to the season continued as his mistake allowed the hosts to restore parity but the manager insists his players were united in the second half to take home an important point which keeps them top of Group F of the competition.

"I am proud of the performance, we produced nice football in the first half," Mazzarri said.

"We could and should have closed the game but we struggled in the second half, also due to fatigue.

"But we were united, we suffered together and we take home an important point which puts us even more closer to qualification.

"The draw is a shame, had we taken more care we would have maybe took all three points but the lads did well and I'm happy with their performance today."

Asked to comment on striker Federico Bonazzoli, the Italian added: "It's clear he will have a bright future if he continues to work hard.

"He did well and his work allowed us to enjoy a solid first half. He helped the team and deserves the praise."
