Mancini U-turn: I'm staying with Inter Milan
"Nobody can understand more than President Moratti, the Inter fans and our entire squad what it feels like to miss out on an objective we cared about a great deal," said Mancini in an official statement released by the club.
"A Coach is always the focus point for the group, but that group feeds on deeper emotions than that. After the game I spoke from the heart and the love of Roberto Mancini, Coach.
"I thank President Moratti for having given me strength, understood the moment and where I was coming from.
"I am sorry for the misunderstandings that may have come from that. The team already knows - we are ready to fight until the last minute with great intensity to conquer our third Scudetto and the Champions League right from next season.
"Finally, I would like to thank the extraordinary Nerazzurri fans who supported us until the final whistle and beyond last night, applauding as we walked off the pitch."
