Roberto Mancini refuses to blame Walter Mazzarri for poor results


Coach Roberto Mancini says former coach Walter Mazzarri should not be blamed for Internazionale's recent run of poor results.

Last night's 1-1 draw against Cesena means the Nerazzurri are yet to register a win in March and they face a very difficult task on Thursday when they host Wolfsburg in the Europa League.

"I don't think the problem was a psychological one," Mancini said.

"We had a chance to move closer to a European place but we didn't play well and wasted a chance.

"I don't think today's draw [will affect Thursday's game in the Europa League], they are two complete different competitions.

"We can recover the deficit but we have to play a great game.

"I don't think [Xherdan Shaqiri] will recover, he suffered a muscular problem.

"After twenty games [in charge] the responsibility is mine.

"These are my mistakes, the previous coach [Walter Mazzarri] cannot be blamed for my mistakes.

"It would be ridiculous to even consider the third place now. Let's hope to do something special on Thursday night."
