Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has said that he is left stunned by the impact that new manager Walter Mazzarri is having on the club.
After arriving only in the summer to replace Andrea Stramaccioni, Mazzarri has been able to get the team into the third position after four matches this season. They have been playing some of the best football in the last few years. Inter have been struggling to reach the heights of 2010 when they were managed by José Mourinho. However, early signs have been suggesting that the team is very close to achieving those heights once again.
Mazzarri has recently oversaw his team manage a stunning 7-0 win over Sassuolo in the league during the weekend. This victory means that they have dropped only two points and that too in the difficult derby against Juventus last weekend. Apart from them, they have torn apart their opposition in the matches so far. In fact, the club has conceded just one goal in the last four matches, which has helped them remain just two points behind Roma and Napoli in the table. Napoli and Roma are the two teams left in the league to boast of a 100% record after four matches.
“No, I didn’t expect Mazzarri to have quite this impact. He’s done brilliantly because he’s a hard worker and he’s instilled the same sense of joy and duty that he has in everyone else. Hopefully that will continue. The players seemed proud to be playing for the shirt. When you win you feel you’re part of an ideal. We’ve spent intelligently, bringing in lots of youngsters who have come in for criticism but are showing how talented they are,” said Moratti, who is reportedly on the verge of selling a major stake in the club to a foreign consortium.
