The 33-year-old Argentine believes that the Italian tactician has been successful in convincing the team to play according to his tactics.
"Compared to the other coaches we had – well, maybe Gian Piero Gasperini, but he didn't have much time – Mazzarri is someone who has his system of play," Cambiasso told Inter Channel.
"He adapts his players to this system that he's believed in for 12 years. The other coaches adapted their idea of the game to the players they had, so perhaps they struggled more. Mazzarri knows his right-winger does this, that his central midfielder does that.
"Mazzarri is much more loyal to his past experiences and his beliefs about the game. It's not a question of authority or the lack thereof, or that before we didn't have it but now we do. It's a tactical issue. I believe Mazzarri's teams have always had their own precise identity."
Inter are currently fourth in Serie A with 25 points from 12 matches, seven points behind leaders Roma.
