Mancini admits "clock ticking" on Inter Milan stars

Inter Milan coach Roberto Mancini has hinted his squad needs an injection of youth for next season.

After victory at Atalanta, Mancini said: "The clock is ticking for the players, even for the best. I think if a coach wins, he can stay maybe 6-7 years. For players, time passes quickly and therefore it is tough to juggle all the games.

"Javier Zanetti, for example, is made of iron but needs to catch his breath. Having some younger players could resurface next season."
