Novara coach Mondonico thrilled with Inter Milan upset

Novara coach Emiliano Mondonico was thrilled with their win over Inter Milan.

Mondonico earned his first win on the Novara bench when Andrea Caracciolo's curler secured a shock 1-0 at San Siro.

"Football is not so complicated for me. We were facing a stronger side, had to defend, were lucky and therefore won. It happens sometimes!" smiled Mondonico.

"The fans ask us to believe in safety and that is what we do. These lads played a very old-fashioned performance, with everyone tight and going on the counter-attack. We scored one, wasted another two or three chances and in the end we won.

"We're satisfied, tomorrow we'll begin thinking about the Atalanta game. That will be tougher than this one, mainly because this one's already finished.

"Inter tried in every way to win the match and ended up with four strikers out there. It was just one of those days where we scored and they didn't. I like other types of football, but ultimately I prefer ones like this - where the smaller side beats the big boys. This sort of thing only really happens in football."
