Roberto Mancini expects tough Udinese game


Internazionale coach Roberto Mancini expects a difficult game against Udinese on Tuesday night.

The Nerazzurri produced one of the shocks of the weekend when they took all three points against Roma on Saturday and will be determined to continue their positive run against Andrea Stramaccioni's men.

"We have to play a good game if we are to win at Udine," Mancini said.

"Udinese did well against Milan, they possess a strong squad and their coach [Andrea Stramaccioni] knows Internazionale very well.

"Little has changed [in respect to the Europa League position], it still doesn't depend entirely on us. We have to produce good performances hoping for those in front of us to drop points and this is an important week to understand [what the outcome will be].

"Recently we showed signs of improvements but we're not there yet. We just have to keep on working, hoping to be consistent and to have a good run of positive results."

Asked about the form of midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri, the Italian said: "In Italy we don't know how to wait.

"He came from a different style of football so he needs time. Same goes for [Lukas] Podolski, he played a lot but didn't score although for him it's different, he wants to return to Arsenal and he will return."
