Roberto Mancini: We were much better after the break


Internazionale coach Roberto Mancini says a draw away at Sampdoria is not a bad result for his side.

The Nerazzurri struggled in the first 45 minutes of the match but improved in the second half and went close to winning the game in a number of occasions.

"At the start, our own mistakes led to a couple of soft counter-attacks for Sampdoria," Mancini told reporters.

"We were too slow and our movement was poor. We were much better after the break and perhaps we deserved to get the winner at the end.

"Nevertheless, they're a great squad and ultimately a draw is not a bad result. The important thing is that we finished the game on the front foot, which is a good sign.

"The guys put in a good performance today, especially in the second half when we opened up the play and grew stronger physically.

"Ivan Perisic got in behind on numerous occasions, even though he started the game in a central position. He has the ability to do that job and he was fantastic today in the No. 10 role.

"As for Kondogbia's substitution, I had originally planned to take Felipe Melo off, but Geoffrey picked up a knock and I was forced to substitute him instead. He will get better, he's still getting used to Italian football which is a lot more physical than in France.

"He's still learning to play on the side of a midfield three, where he has a lot less space than when he played in a classic central midfield.

"Gary Medel is doing really well in defence so far, but he will come in handy in midfield as well. Adem Ljajic made a difference when he came on as well."
