Inter Milan No2 Mihajlovic explains Adriano absence

Inter Milan assistant coach Sinisa Mihajlovic says the decision to leave out Adriano for last night's clash at Roma was proved correct by their 4-1 win.

Inter coach Roberto Mancini fielded Zlatan Ibrahimovic as a lone forward and Mihajlovic said: "Adriano is too similar to Ibrahimovic, so we chose to bring on Julio Cruz - who scored.

"The same thing happened with Hernan Crespo. He came on and managed to score. Crespo scores goals as only he can."
