Inter Milan seeking tonic for recent struggles in visit to Sassuolo

Inter Milan president Erick Thohir has backed Roberto Mancini to turn around the club's fortunes after a difficult season.

Inter went down by a last-minute goal against Torino last weekend in a game they dominated. Manager Roberto Mancini has only won twice in nine games with his team, but this weekend they face Sassuolo. This is a fixture in which the Nerazzurri have enjoyed a lot of success over the past two seasons. Will the new Inter coach follow in the footsteps of predecessor Walter Mazzarri and decimate the underdogs, or will this prove another tough task?

On the face of it, this game suggests that is the perfect...

Roberto Mancini calls Inter 'useless' but he deserves some blame, too

Roberto Mancini was left frustrated as his Inter Milan side drew a blank against Empoli.

Inter coach Roberto Mancini was quite rightly infuriated by his side's 0-0 draw at Empoli on Saturday, labelling his flops as "useless."

The dull and damp backdrop at the Stadio Carlo Castellani seemed to have an effect on Inter, who did nothing to deserve their stalemate. Good performances against Juventus and Genoa had given their fans hope, but the Nerazzurri were sloppy and deserved their tongue-lashing from the boss.

Tough decisions for Mancini ahead of Inter's trip to Empoli

Xherdan Shaqiri is confident in his decision to play for Inter after turning down interest from multiple clubs.

Inter are in a buoyant mood as they travel to Tuscany to face Empoli on Saturday. Reinvigorated under manager Roberto Mancini, they have been a different team after the winter break and will be looking to continue their good form this weekend. The match could see his team eventually resemble the one the Nerazzurri coach has been craving, especially with hailed signing Xherdan Shaqiri possibly making his debut.

Empoli will not be looking forward to the visit from the Milanese giants. Four draws...

Podolski the latest chapter in Inter's long history of Germans

Lukas Podolski wants to help Inter Milan get back to their position as one of the top clubs in European football.

When Lukas Podolski was officially presented as an Inter player on Thursday, he said an important reason he decided to join the Nerazzurri was that he had "positive meetings with Piero Ausilio and Roberto Mancini," the director of sport and the coach, respectively.

But Podolski was also aware of the fact that Inter have a long and occasionally very successful history of German players. When he was a kid, growing up in Bergheim near Cologne, West Germany won the 1990 World Cup in Italy largely...
