Inter Milan coach Stramaccioni relieved to snap form slump

Inter Milan coach Andrea Stramaccioni was delighted with the manner of their 3-1 win over Chievo Verona.

The Nerazzurri had won just one of their previous seven, but pushed the Flying Donkeys aside 3-1 to consolidate fourth place.

"In the first half we weren't as focused on set plays as we should've been and Chievo surprised us on a couple of occasions," said the Coach.

"After the break we were more careful and didn't allow our opponents anything. I think tonight we saw a sign that this team is still alive and angry after a difficult period.

"It was a positive performance, building a great deal in attack and overall allowing little at the back. Our three strikers give us an extra gear going forward, but they were also generous in tracking back today, because they know that without their contribution we can't use a 4-3-3.

"I wanted to leave Esteban Cambiasso free to push forward down the right, while Walter Gargano was there to give balance to a flank where Antonio Cassano and Yuto Nagatomo would play in a very aggressive manner.

"Overall, we played like Inter tonight. We always go out to win and know anything less than a victory is no good to us. This evening everyone followed my orders and you saw a great performance."
