Stramaccioni on 9-goal Inter Milan debut: Moratti asked for entertainment!

Inter Milan coach Andrea Stramaccioni loved producing their nine goal thriller against Genoa. Inter defeated Genoa 5-4 on Stramaccioni's coaching debut, with Diego Milito hitting a hat-trick.

"I think the most important thing is that Inter won. The fact it came in such a spectacular manner will please President Moratti, as he did ask us to entertain him!" smiled the 36-year-old.

"I saw an attacking and positive Inter that were able to express the qualities of its individuals. I really liked the first half performance, apart from conceding that late goal that restored Genoa's confidence.

"It was a victory of the whole group, as everyone gave their contribution, from the starting XI to the substitutes."

There are still nerves, as the Nerazzurri were 3-0 up after 38 minutes, but eventually scraped the 5-4 thriller with both teams reduced to 10 men.

"Can I now play without the pressure of a result? I don't think that's possible in Serie A! We are not drawing up any expectations or targets, but must take it one game at a time.

"I don't think Diego Forlan played out of position, as he has great quality and has often played in that wider role. By talking to him, I realised he wants to give a great deal to this team.

"The midfield has elements of real quality, as Dejan Stankovic gave us tempo, but was struggling after the break, so I introduced Fredy Guarin and Joel Obi who could help us during a difficult moment of the game."
