Inter Milan coach Stramaccioni left frustrated by Fiorentina stalemate
He said: "Our idea was to push forward, seeing as Fiorentina had five defenders and three midfielders. I used quality players for the one-on-one and thought Zarate, Alvarez and also Maicon did well when Fiorentina allowed some space.
"Forlan could've done better, as is true for everybody, but I don't regret picking him. It takes a little time to get this new approach down.
"As for the Champions League qualification, until it becomes mathematically impossible then we will keep believing. We are Inter and always fight for the best possible objective."
