Roberto Mancini on the defeat, Guarin, Osvaldo and the red card


Internazionale coach Roberto Mancini says his team is aware of what needs to be improved.

The Nerazzurri suffered their fourth defeat of the season against Roma as they fall down to 11th in the table but the Italian says there's still some positive to take from Sunday's game.

"Garcia's Roma has been doing well since last season, they have quality players," Mancini said.

"We knew it wasn't going to be easy but in a way we managed to equal them. We made mistakes and we know we have to work to correct them but the defeat will not change our philosophy.

"We let them have possession and it's clear that when this happens they become dangerous.

"We just have to look forward, understanding what we've done right, we knew we were going to suffer disappointments.

"[My red card?] I protested, true, but I did it for a reason. Just look at the game, I don't want to talk about the referee."

Asked to comment on the performance of Fredy Guarin and Dani Osvaldo, Mancini said: "[Guarin?] I think his best position is to play behind the strikers but he has to understand when to try something on his own or when he has to pass the ball.

"[Osvaldo?] He did well, it wasn't a way to punish Icardi, we play every three games so it's normal to use all available players."
