Inter coach Mancini dismisses Seedorf criticism

Inter coach Roberto Mancini has dismissed criticism from AC Milan's Clarence Seedorf that his team plays 'ugly'.

"I have nothing to say, everyone is free to say what they want," snapped a clearly irritated Mancini. "Every time I open my mouth someone stirs up all kinds of controversy, so I prefer to keep quiet."

The Coach was also annoyed at questions over his future after he failed to attend a post-match Press conference last Sunday.

"This shows you what level we’re at now. I can’t even be tired after a game without people spinning a yarn about it."

Ahead of today's derby, Mancini continued: "All derbies have that certain atmosphere, but admittedly this one is a little different as it could be the match where we celebrate the Scudetto.

"Milan are in much better shape than they were a few months ago. They have great players and sometimes you can run into a season where it all goes wrong. You need that little bit of luck to win.

"Further evidence of that comes from Barcelona, who I consider to be the best team in Europe and the world, but who haven’t won anything for two years."
