Inter Milan coach Walter Mazzarri was pleased with their 4-0 Coppa Italia win over Cittadella.
Inter now face little Trapanda in the next round.
â€śAside from the result, the important thing was to put in a convincing performance,â€ť Mazzarri told SportItalia.
â€śWe were a little anxious at first and some players felt the nerves of the season debut, but then we relaxed and the team was convincing at times.
â€śCittadella were in better shape compared to us, as they had played the previous round, but we must not consider the result. We just have to focus on improving.
â€śRicky Alvarez is doing well, but needs to be more consistent from game to game. He has great quality.
â€śMy first official match on the Inter bench gave me a great sensation, but it was embarrassing when I was heading for the wrong bench. It wouldnâ€™t have been so bad if I hadnâ€™t asked Diego Milito beforehand which one it wasâ€¦â€ť
