Roberto Mancini: More games are needed to understand my players


Internazionale coach Roberto Mancini says he needs at least three more games to have a better understanding of his players.

The Nerazzurri produced a fine display of attacking football against rivals Milan on Sunday evening but the Italian insists that time is needed to understand how far his team can go.

"You notice things during the game that cannot be seen in training," Mancini said.

"Three-four more games are needed to understand better all the players and now we have two games coming up so all elements are required.

"We failed to recover our positions in time when we conceded and this is one of the things we have to work on.

"Osvaldo was expected to come in earlier but Obi suffered an injury and I had to use Hernanes.

"We are of course aware of the fact that we have to finish in the top three to make it into the Champions League but there is still a long way to go in the championship."
