Andrea Stramaccioni has been discussing his past season in charge of Inter Milan.
Stramaccioni lost his job in May after a poor campaign.
"I spoke daily and a great deal with my ex-President," Stramaccioni told Sky Sport Italia.
"What happened in the last 10 days, between the game with Genoa and the end of the season, did everything. However, I will never bite the hand that fed me.
"From January we started having many different problems, a bit of bad luck and lost important players, above all Walter Samuel and Diego Milito. Then there were Rodrigo Palacio, Javier Zanetti and the others.
"Despite all this, with humility, I felt that I was in control of the situation until the midway point of the season.
"During the emergency situation and the difficulties I paid for my inexperience. There's nothing wrong in admitting that I made mistakes too."
