Walter Mazzarri: 'Players are making me look good'

Walter Mazzarri says that the Inter Milan players are the ones who deserve credit for their early-season form in Serie A.

Inter Milan coach Walter Mazzarri has heaped praise upon his players following last night's 2-1 win over Fiorentina.

Goals from Esteban Cambiasso and Jonathan cancelled out Giuseppe Rossi's 59th-minute penalty at the San Siro, lifting the Nerazzurri to second after five games of the season in Serie A.

"It was a struggle against a very strong team with real quality," the 51-year-old told Sky Sport Italia. "Their only real scoring opportunities were created by our mistakes, whereas we had the chance to finish off two really good counter-attacks in the first half alone.

"We need to grow, but thankfully these lads are achieving something exceptional with the time I've had to impart my ideas.

"It is wonderful and enormously satisfying to see [the team's] fortunes transformed, but it's the players who do it all for me and I must always thank them for making me look good."

Inter finished ninth under Andrea Stramaccioni last season.
