Walter Mazzarri takes positives from draw with Saint-Etienne

Walter Mazzarri refuses to be critical of Inter Milan following their goalless draw with Saint-Etienne in the Europa League.

Inter Milan manager Walter Mazzarri has elected to remain positive following the goalless draw with Saint-Etienne on Thursday night.

A below-par display from Inter saw their 100% Europa League record come to an end at the San Siro, but Mazzarri believes that a difficult run of fixtures is to blame for his side's struggles.

"We are in an emergency situation and playing every three days meant we weren't as sharp as usual," the Nerazzurri boss told Mediaset.

"Today we had to change a great deal and considering the situation I think it was a good performance. The important thing was to continue picking up points.

"Of course I'd love champagne football but I don't see many doing that nowadays. Saint-Etienne are a team to be respected."

Inter return to action against Cesena in Serie A on Saturday.
