Inter Milan have not won in the last seven matches, but manager Roberto Mancini has promised a positive attitude from the players when they take to the pitch against Hellas Verona.
This match is a great opportunity for Inter to register their first win in the league after a month. Their opposition are struggling with the prospect of relegation with only 11 points separating them from the drop zone. They have been in decent run of form in recent weeks and the 2-0 win over Napoli is a perfect indicator of it. Despite this, Mancini is confident that his players will be able to perform in this difficult away match.
Mancini has come under pressure due to the club failing to hit the heights as he had promised upon taking over from Walter Mazzarri. There has been no improvement in results and it looks almost certain that the club will be finishing outside the top 10 if they continue on this poor run of form. Mancini has asked for more patience from the supporters and the club, but he may not get that patience for long if results do not improve. The fact that rivals AC Milan have recently overtaken them in the table and hold a three-point advantage makes things worse for Mancini.
“I want to see a positive attitude from the side. I don’t expect them to play like they did against Parma.We need to rediscover our desire to play and the toughness we showed in Genoa and in other matches.There’s always a chance you can lose, but we need to show our desire to win. That’s the only way to pick up a good result. We need to remember that simply being Inter is not enough to win football matches. We need some success in the next nine matches to set ourselves up well for next season,” said Mancini.
