Roberto Mancini on Celtic and injured players


Internazionale coach Roberto Mancini says the Europa League is an important objective for his side.

After a disappointing start to the new year, the Nerazzurri registered two very important wins against Palermo and Atalanta this month in the Serie A and will be looking to improve their record when they face Ronny Deila's side at Celtic Park on Thursday.

"Celtic is strong, they like to play with the ball on the ground because they have good elements in the squad," Mancini told reporters during this evening's press conference.

"Scottish football improved over the last few years so they can easily win a trophy.

"[The Europa League] is important but tough as there are many important teams, like Celtic to start with. The atmosphere will be beautiful, in a way it's a different game because it's played over 180 minutes.

"But we hope to reach the very end of the competition although clearly, our focus is only on tomorrow's game. There are four rounds to go [before the final] so we have to focus on this game, make it through and then we see as we progress.

"We only have two players out injured: [Danilo] D'Ambrosio and [Marco] Andreolli, all the others are available.

"[Nemanja] Vidic had problems after the Sassuolo game but he trained with the rest of the squad in the last few days. If he doesn't start the game he could be used in the second half."
