Zdenek Zeman hails Cagliari quality

Cagliari manager Zdenek Zeman says that his players showed their attacking quality in today's victory against Inter Milan.

Cagliari manager Zdenek Zeman has praised the performance of his players following their 4-1 win over Inter Milan.

The Rossoblu came into the match bottom of the table, but scored four times in the first half, with Albin Ekdal netting a hat-trick.

"I was always convinced this team could play football. We came here to play, in other games we didn't manage it, but these players have quality and I hope we can always play with this intensity," he told Sky Sport Italia.

"We were in good physical shape before, but we were more worried about defending than attacking and didn't move the ball around quickly enough. Today we had more spaces to run into and took the game to Inter.

"Can my style of football still work? We beat Inter at San Siro, so that's enough for me. Some people said we were relegated yesterday, but we came here and beat a team that has Scudetto ambitions. Now I want us to repeat that performance."

Cagliari return to league action next Saturday with a trip to Hellas Verona.
