Inter Milan boss Stramaccioni: I didn't want Maicon to leave Man City

Inter Milan boss Andrea Stramaccioni says he didn't want to lose Douglas Maicon.

Maicon moved to Manchester City in the final week of the summer market.

Stramaccioni said: "We tried to keep hold of Douglas Maicon until August 30 and obviously with him the four-man defence could've had a different degree of balance, but once he joined Manchester City then we had to make the most of the five centre-backs at our disposal."
