Horncastle: Mancini rebuilding Inter

Serie A
 By Richard Hall

Inter travel to Napoli with one eye still on Europe

Facing upcoming matches against Napoli and Wolfsburg, Roberto Mancini and Inter will need to prioritise Serie A or the Europa League.

Inter Milan face Napoli on Sunday in a game that will not only be difficult on the pitch but also in the planning. Roberto Mancini has to weigh up his options between concentrating on a solid end to the Serie A season, or whether he should put all his efforts into the Europa League. His team selection will be very telling but neither option seems favourable.

His team's performances have perhaps left him thinking that they are not capable of challenging in two competitions. Instead, the sensible...

Inter Milan need more from ineffective Podolski, Kovacic

Lukas Podolski is the first German to play at Inter Milan in 22 years.
Loaned from Arsenal in the winter window, Podolski has been a disappointment at Inter thus far.

Mohamed Salah's strike made the difference between Inter and Fiorentina on Sunday evening. The in-form winger gave his side an important away win and showed that once again he could turn a game for the Viola.

The Milanese club could only look on as two of their potential difference-makers didn't step up to the mark. Lukas Podolski and Mateo Kovacic have failed on numerous occasions this season to adapt to the playing style of Roberto Mancini.

Inter and Fiorentina approached the game with confidence...

Inter show improvement but still have a long way to go

Celtic manager Ronny Delia said the referee had a bad day at work, while Roberto Mancini believes that the red card helped his side dominate the second half.

Fredy Guarin's late thunderbolt gave Inter Milan a 1-0 victory over Celtic in the Europa League sending them through to the next round 4-3 on aggregate. The Milan club have been in good form of late winning four and drawing one out of their last five. This does not tell the whole story however, and coach Roberto Mancini has made in clear that improvements are needed still.

"We are getting better, but still make mistakes in every single match. When we don't make mistakes any more, then we can say...

Mauro Icardi must stay at Inter: key points from their 2-1 win vs. Cagliari

Icardi scored another vital goal for Inter in a difficult season, underscoring why they can't afford to lose him.

Inter climbed to seventh in the table after overcoming Cagliari 1-2 in Sardinia. Roberto Mancini has a lot to think about in the aftermath of the match as whilst some of his team allowed him to feel positive and proud, other members have done nothing but pose a conundrum that he is struggling to solve.

Inter are still looking to grab the final European spot and three league wins on the bounce is certainly reason to give them hope. Individual and collective errors will need to be ruled out however...

Inter's tactical improvements undermined by centre-back pairing

John Guidetti's dramatic goal in injury time earned Celtic a much-needed equalizer in a 3-3 draw with Inter Milan.
Andrea Ranocchia has come under fire for some poor performances.

Although they continued to implement many of Roberto Mancini's new ideas, by conceding late in their thrilling Europa League draw with Celtic on Thursday night, Inter Milan once again provided proof that defensively they are still as frail as they have been all season.

Inter travelled to Celtic Park to take on the Scottish champions after back-to-back wins in Serie A but were pegged back to 3-3, leaving all to play for in the second leg.

The match saw media outlets in the UK nostalgically look back...

Inter's Roberto Mancini returning club's sense of historical importance

The ESPN FC team answer your twitter questions on Inter Milan's January signings and Angel Di Maria's role with United.

"They are still the Grande Inter!" declared La Gazzetta dello Sport's front page. If you're glancing at Monday's edition wondering why it isn't staring you back in the face, that's because it never appeared in it.

The pink's headline writers had instead decided to play with the Italian verb to heal -- guarire -- to sum up Fredy Guarin's man-of-the-match display against Atalanta and his effect on the team. "Il Dottor GuarINTER": "The doctor heals Inter." While a 4-1 win was encouraging, not least...
