Roberto Mancini laments Mauro Icardi's injury in Bologna victory

Mauro Icardi
Mauro Icardi could be sidelined for several weeks after suffering an apparent knee strain.

Inter Milan's 2-1 win over Bologna in Serie A on Saturday has been soured by an injury to Mauro Icardi, Nerazzurri boss Roberto Mancini has said.

The striker succumbed to a reported knee strain during the match which, on top of an impending ban for Rodrigo Palacio, has left the Inter boss scrambling for attacking alternatives ahead of next week's crunch-match against Roma.

"Clearly, in losing Mauro so early we missed his presence in the box. We still created chances, but overall it was a good performance," Mancini told Sky Sports Italia.

"It's disappointing for Mauro, as we don't know the extent of the injury yet, and for Rodrigo, who is a major player.

"There are another eight games after Roma, but clearly a positive result will leave the race wide open. It's an important game."

The match appeared to be heading towards a comfortable conclusion for the hosts, before Franco Brienza scored in the 90th minute to give Bologna a glimmer of hope -- a mistake that Mancini has urged his side not to make again.

"We made life complicated for ourselves at the end in a game where we'd risked practically nothing," he added.

"We cannot make mistakes like that when 2-0 up in the last three minutes.

"Bologna were in an excellent period of form and rarely conceded, so we knew it would be difficult to break the deadlock."
