Mazzarri takes blame for Inter defeat

5 August 2013 12:54

Walter Mazzarri has admitted that his training schedule has taken its toll on his Inter squad following another pre-season loss.

Mazzarri's side fell to a 4-0 defeat against Valencia in the International Champions Cup on Sunday, their third game without a win under their new coach.

Two goals from Jonathan Viera and one apiece from Ever Banega and Jonas secured the win for the Liga side but Mazzarri is confident that his team, who lost 2-0 to Chelsea in the pre-season tournament opener, will find form once the league campaign starts.

"Game wise, we took three steps back from the match against Chelsea," he admitted. "Valencia were faster, always first on the ball.

"Instead we played with heavy legs, but it's my fault, yesterday (Saturday) I made them work intensely, but in this part of the summer preparations I would rather want my team to be slow and work.

"We have to make a decision here. Either we want to be brilliant in these friendly matches - even though this is meant to be a tournament, to me it's still full of friendlies to build up your form for the league - I repeat, either we choose brilliance here and we don't work, or we go down the road we chose, hoping all this work will pay off by the time the league comes."

Inter have one more friendly clash against Juventus before the Serie A season starts on August 25 versus Genoa.
