Walter Mazzarri: I bless the upcoming international break


Internazionale coach Walter Mazzarri was full of praise for Verona ahead of tomorrow's game at the San Siro stadium.

The Nerazzurri will be desperate to forget last week's disappointing game against Parma with Mazzarri hoping to have injured players back after the international break.

"Verona has been doing well for years," Mazzarri said.

"Mandorlini did an exceptional job, they are very good on the counter and very organised [at the back].

"[Vidic?] I'm curious to know what mistake he made in France. He was focused on his player and there was a ricochet and then turned to block the opposition so I saw nothing to blame him for.

"[Palacio?] I don't want to repeat what I already said about him; he's very important for us. "Unfortunately his ankle is still bothering him but he has to play because he needs to be on the pitch.

"I bless the upcoming international break in the same way I did with the previous one.

"I hope it can help us to have injured players back. If we're fit we can trouble any team even if we failed to do it on a consistent way."
