- Favorite Player
Sometimes the timing for a player just works or not, i agree.It is retarded to compare players like this when they played under complete different circumstances. Just take a look on the players Strama and Mazzarri had to deal with and the ones we have today. Do you even imagine that this club would sign players similar to Rocchi, Kuzmanovic and Schelotto with Mancini as the coach? Hell I even still remember the press conference like it was yesterday where Kuz and Schelotto got presented as this were the best players the club could sign.
Thohir opened his wallet for Mancini and it has so far been great for both of them. Had Strama and Mazzarri the same possibilities in terms of spending this amount of cash? Hell no. Kovacic was the great signing made by Strama but had to adjust his game only a few months later when Mazzarri took over. Then after a season-and-something he yet again had to adjust as Mancini came by. I would have loved to see him on this team today instead of Guarin but it sadly didn't happen.
Real Madrid is a different club. Would you think Brozovic would have done much better in Madrid? We will never know.
We were expecting too much of Kova and the pressure made him crack.
Ok then.Welcome back Wera.
He came here - to Italy - when he was 19 years old and the coach that got him here was fired a few months after which resulted in us getting Mazzari in and a complete change in philosophy. You don't think this will have a bigger impact on a 19 years old kid who just came to Italy than a native Italian player with a lot of experience? My point is that an young foreign player of course will be hit by this. Brozovic would probably had been hit in the same way if it wasn't because the club is in a much more stable condition right now.
I don't think Kovacic cracked under a pressure. Mancini simply didn't trust him enough. I have multiple times in here showed people the numbers of minutes he played for each month in the last half year he played here and it is pretty obvious that Mancini started using him in the last two months of the season mainly because he wanted to make him attract the view of the bigger clubs. Kovacic was clearly not a part of Mancinis plans even through he mostly did fine when he played for him. This is why I think people are judging him not fairly as they tend to label him as "he busted under Mancinis pressure" but what the fuck he never truly got the chance according to the amount of minutes he played.
Inter coach Roberto Mancini lavished praise on star striker Mauro Icardi, stating he never doubted the Argentine would return to form after helping the Nerazzurri past Udinese on Saturday.
The 22-year-old scored a brace, while Stevan Jovetic and Marcelo Brozovic rounded out the 4-0 scoreline which sees the Biscione extend their lead atop the Serie A standings to four points over Fiorentina.
Mancini pointed to Icardi’s goal tally as proof the Argentine has impressed despite being benched at times this campaign, while suggesting his understanding with Jovetic is also improving.
“He put in a great performance,” Mancini told Mediaset Premium. “I was never worried about him.
“He’s scored six goals up to now which is a good return. Jovetic also had a great game today as their understanding with one another is growing.
“Today’s win doesn’t change much, especially as several teams have to play tomorrow. It is still too early to talk [about the standings].
“It was important to win here. We showed the right spirit, and that was important as there are no easy matches.
“At times we suffered because they are a great team, and our wingers weren’t tracking back which opened up space. However, we did well after the restart.”
