Despite the numerous problems faced with consistency last season, manager Walter Mazzarri says that Inter Milan enjoyed a good season last time around. He is targeting a return to Champions League as the preparations start for the upcoming campaign. Inter are expected to be one of the club’s highly active in the transfer window this year. They have already signed top players like Vidic while more are expected to follow suit in the next few weeks.
However, the optimism ahead of the new campaign does not take anything away from the poor season that they enjoyed in Mazzarri’s first campaign at the club. The former Napoli man, who came close to winning the league title with his previous club, says that last season was a success. The contradictory statements is likely to draw a lot of comments especially since many have been calling for the head of Mazzarri in the last few weeks. Inter have been linked with several Premier league players in the hope of rebuilding for the future.
The likes of Torres, John obi Mikel, and Vidic to replace the likes of Diego Milito, Cambiasso, and Walter Samuel. These players have been very influential in Inter’s success over the years.
“The return to Europe was not an obvious goal. But I think it was a successful year, in which we did so many good things. I’m sure I’ll be coach next year. I have a contract. I’m very pleased with the call I got from [president Erick] Thohir once we were certain to be in Europe. At a general level there were too many draws, we missed out on some victories when we threw away a lead. But I take responsibility. Even when we win, I’m not satisfied. We are already working with players for next season,” said the Inter manager.
