Roberto Mancini on the Roma game, says Mateo Kovacic is fit to play


Internazionale coach Roberto Mancini says midfielder Mateo Kovacic is fit to face Roma on Sunday night.

The youngster suffered a foot injury during last week's draw in the derby against Milan but the manager confirms he is expected to be in the starting line-up.

"I think it's fair to say that they [Roma] are stronger," Mancini said.

"They are more confident because they have been doing well for a long time and also [Rudi] Garcia is a very good manager.

"There's still a long way to go in the championship and [Roma] can win it, just like Napoli. They have a lot of excellent players, including the young ones.

"[As for us], we should not look at the table, we have to take it one step at a time."

Asked to give an update on injured players, Mancini said: "I don't think he [Yuto Nagatomo] needs surgery, he should be back next week.

"Mateo [Kovacic] suffered a foot problem but he trained and should be available for the [Roma] game."
