Mancini Evasive In Post Match Press Conference

Inter boss Roberto Mancini showed the press on Sunday night that he is not happy with the club’s summer transfer activity.

Mancini met this weekend with President Erick Thohir and chief executive Michael Bolingbroke to discuss the Nerazzurri’s summer transfer activity or lack there off.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Mediaset Premium, Sportitalia and Calciomercato.it, Mancini did not get the answers or reassurances he was looking for during the meeting and that he is considering handing in his resignation.

So it was a tense Mancini who met the press after the PSG defeat, where he was asked about possible transfer dealings. Mancini is usually very open on these matters but his responses were very terse curt saying:

“As for whether Icardi is not for sale, you’ll have to ask the president.

Do we need Candreva to strengthen the squad? Again, this is a question for the president.”

Not a good sign for Inter whose season is threatening to implode and we have not even gotten to 1 August yet!

As for the rest of his comments, Mancini had this to say about the PSG match:

“Right now there’s a huge gap between ourselves and Paris Saint-Germain. We did quite well for 70 minutes, playing at their level. After the substitutions, you could notice more of a difference because we sent on the youngsters, while they were able to bring on players of the calibre of Edinson Cavani and Angel Di Maria.

“It was also very hot, which could have influenced the drop in our fitness levels. We’ve now got two matches ahead of us, let’s hope we do well. Kondogbia hasn’t got a serious injury.”
