Roberto Mancini: I'm happy with our second-half display


Internazionale coach Roberto Mancini was happy after last night's 1-1 draw away a Palermo.

It is third consecutive draw for the Nerazzurri this month.

They moved up to first on level points with Fiorentina with the Viola in action later on today against Roma.

"Palermo caused us problems in the opening stages because we were too stretched out," Mancini said.

"Then towards the end of the first half and in the second period Jovetic dropped in between the lines and we did much better. We were unlucky to concede that goal to them and unlucky to lose Murillo too.

"Even when we went down to ten men we had chances to restore our lead but Sorrentino did brilliantly.

"I'm happy with our second-half display because we gave it our best shot right up till the end. Now we really need to start winning again though.

"Icardi is going through a period where he's finding it harder to hit the back of the net - that's something all strikers go though. The main thing is he stays calm and always gets involved in our moves.

"He needs to improve his understanding with Jovetic because they've only played six or seven games together. Even when the team is not firing on all cylinders, if you have two strikers on the same wavelength they can win games for you.

"Unfortunately Biabiany isn't up to playing the full 90 minutes yet, otherwise he would have started today because he's ideal on the right wing.

"I hope he gets back into peak shape quickly but it's not easy because he's been out for a year and a half. When he was on the field he showed what he can do. He's certainly a very useful player to have around.

"I took off Kondogbia because he was booked but he was playing well. I was going to take Murillo off for the same reason."
