Roberto Mancini: We have to keep working


Internazionale coach Roberto Mancini admits he's still not entirely happy with his squad.

The Nerazzurri had to work hard to battle past Celtic in the Europa League on Thursday and the Italian was very clear that his players must stop making mistakes and play with more confidence.

"I saw improvements today but time is needed for this team to be where I want it to be," Mancini said.

"It's not good when you miss 7-8 passes.

"Things were easier after the red card but I would have preferred to see the team take advantage of the opportunities created so as to put the game to bed earlier.

"We have to keep working. Sometimes we miss a pass and sometimes it seems we're afraid to play our game.

"Many games are coming up, we have three days to prepare our next game."

Fiorentina, Napoli, Roma and Torino all qualified on Thursday but Mancini says all remaining teams are strong in the competition.

"It will make no difference, regardless if we get to meet an Italian team or not," he said.

"Of course we would have the advantage of not having to travel, we're five in all so it's a possibility."
