Inter Milan coach Walter Mazzarri is angry with criticism of his team after defeat to Lazio.

Mazzarri is unhappy his team's been compared in the media to Andrea Stramaccioni’s side from last season or the current Milan squad.

“I hope that the Inter fans – who seem to know their stuff – are not misled when incomplete information is given. I also saw a comparison made between Inter and Milan today. If people want to do that, then let’s not forget how many points this team I inherited earned in the second half of last season.

“Last year Milan finished third with the same squad that began this year – they even strengthened during the close season. And at the moment nine points separate us. I don't really want to get any further into this, I'd just like to say that I saw our season being put on a par with Milan's and I don't think that's right because there's a huge difference, even without considering that they're nine points behind us.

“I’ve even heard people say that in some games Inter did nothing but defend and attack on the counter. In fact we've done very little counter-attacking; if anything we've been caught out on the break.

“It is always tough in Udine. They have a fine Coach and very good players, so we mustn't take this lightly. Unfortunately we'll be playing away from our fans and that's a shame because we could have done with them behind us at the moment.”
