Roberto Mancini ahead of Napoli game, says Marcelo Brozovic could start


Internazionale coach Roberto Mancini expects a difficult game in the Italian Cup against Napoli.

After last Sunday's unexpected defeat against Sassuolo, their second straight defeat in the Serie A after the defeat against Torino, the Nerazzurri will shift their focus to the Italian Cup.

And Mancini wants his players to reduce errors if they are to stand a chance of progressing in the cup.

"It's difficult against this Napoli side but Internazionale can do it," Mancini said.

"All games are important, we want to do well tomorrow. Napoli is strong, I expected them to fight for the title.

"Unfortunately we have been making the same mistakes lately, technical mistake, but I wouldn't say that the players' attitude has been bad.

"We have to score goals, do our best not to concede, keep the ball and not give chances to the opposition.

"We want to get there. The players are working very hard, they are training well and I can understand why the fans are upset [after the defeat against Sassuolo].

"We play after three days, we'll then play again after four so there will be changes. [Marcelo] Brozovic could start the game."

Asked if he's happy with the winter transfer window operations, Mancini said: "Yes, the January transfer window is always a difficult one.

"We signed a number of interesting youngsters who can help next season. Let's hope we signed the right players."
