Stramaccioni upbeat despite loss

Inter Milan coach Andrea Stramaccioni appeared unfazed after watching his side suffer a surprising 2-0 loss at home to Hajduk Split in the Europa League.

• Europa League round-up

Inter ultimately went through to the final qualifying round thanks to their 3-0 first leg triumph despite goals from Ante Vukusic and Ivan Vukovic handing Hajduk an incredible victory at San Siro.

Stramaccioni was happy to take that as a positive, although he stressed that there needs to be much improvement for his team to become challengers.

"I think in this case the first-leg result turned out to be a negative factor but let's not make a big deal out of it," he said. "Getting through to the next round was the main thing. We do have a few things to work on."

In charge of the first team since March, the former youth coach also said the club is committed to reinforcing the squad but must do so while complying with UEFA's Financial Fair Play regulations.

"We know who we're after but this is a strange transfer window with the Financial Fair Play rules set to kick in. We know we're a bit short but we've already said that. We need a midfielder - that much is clear just looking at the numbers. This year we're starting a fresh but the president wants to build a great Inter team."
