Stramaccioni insists Inter Milan will shake off Spurs setback

Inter Milan coach Andrea Stramaccioni insists there's no reason for panic after their Europa League thrashing at Tottenham.

Stramaccioni is again under pressure after the reverse.

"I hope that I won't have to talk about our elimination from Europe next Thursday," said Stramaccioni in his Press conference.

"Qualification is an uphill struggle and we will try, but there are huge regrets that we had to face Tottenham in their best period of form and when we were missing so many players.

"Inter are Inter and compete for every objective, but from the first day we've known the club's real target was to get back into the Champions League.

"It is only normal there are going to be difficulties. This season has seen ups and downs, but until the injury crisis set in we were a point off the leaders. We've had numerous problems that affected our campaign, though we don't want to use them as an alibi.

"We are building for the future here, both in the current side and on the transfer market. You can't put everything up for debate at the first defeat."
