Andrea Stramaccioni insists that Inter Milan will recover from their defeat at Tottenham Hotspur, and will continue building for the future.

Inter Milan manager Andrea Stramaccioni has insisted that his side can continue to progress despite their heavy midweek defeat against Tottenham Hotspur.

The Italian admitted that progression in the Europa League will now be difficult but insists that the club's main aim is to return to the Champions League.

Inter are currently four points behind the top three in Serie A.

"Qualification is an uphill struggle and we will try, but there are huge regrets that we had to face Tottenham in their best period of form," Stramaccioni said.

"Inter are Inter and compete for every objective but from the first day we've known that the club's real target was to get back into the Champions League.

"We are building for the future here, both in the current side and in the transfer market. You can't put everything up for debate after the first defeat."

Inter face Bologna in their next game tomorrow night.
