The midfielder is optimistic about his side’s chances of success this season after overcoming a difficult start to the 2014-15 campaign
Inter midfielder Hernanes believes the Giuseppe Meazza side have averted a crisis following their 1-0 Serie A win over Cesena.
Walter Mazzarri declared the club were in a state of emergency after drawing 0-0 with Saint-Etienne in the Europa League on Thursday having drawn 2-2 with Napoli in the league the previous weekend.
The club’s honorary president Massimo Moratti also announced his resignation last week amid reports he wanted the Nerazzurri boss fired, but Mauro Icardi’s solitary strike on Sunday eased the pressure on Mazzarri an prompted Hernanes to declare all is well again at San Siro.
“We’re out of our tough period; now we can build on this, showing the same desire and playing better football,” the Brazil international told Inter Channel.
“We’ve won and we’re going home with three points – that’s the most important thing. The team showed character and will to win; we must continue like that, always playing with great heart.
“Football is a crazy game. When you want to win at all costs, maybe you lose a bit of nerve when looking for the right pass. We were lacking the knock-out blow against Cesena, but as I was saying, if you’re not calm you can’t make the right decisions.”
Inter have climbed to eighth spot in the table following their win over Cesena.
