Inter must score more, says Mazzarri

The 53-year-old has urged his attackers to step up their game and was unaware of criticism from the fans during the victory over Sampdoria

Inter coach Walter Mazzarri says his side must begin to finish off more of their chances in the wake of their 1-0 win over Sampdoria.

The Giuseppe Meazza outfit missed a number of opportunities before Mauro Icardi eventually found the net from 12 yards in the closing stages of the game to help his team to a vital win.

“We’ve beaten a side that had not lost once this season. The only negative is that we couldn’t take more of our chances,” the Inter coach said at a press conference.

“At the end of the day, we’ve won, but hopefully we’re saving up the goals for the next match.

“I think my team put in a great performance in terms of the football we played. We’re happy with how the lads are playing. This is a united group made up of good men. This team feels truly mine.”

Inter were whistled by some of their fans during half-time, but Mazzarri stressed he did not hear the jeers.

“I didn’t hear them; I went straight into the dressing room so that I could think about how the team was doing and what we should do after the break. That’s why I didn’t hear any whistles.

“Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I prefer to let my team and our points tally do the talking.”
