Mazzarri explains limited use of Inter Milan youngsters

Inter Milan coach Walter Mazzarri has defended his limited use of young players.

Mazzarri has been criticised for not giving more playing time to youngsters like Ishak Belfodil - who left on loan to Livorno - Mateo Kovacic and Mauro Icardi.

"It's true I didn't choose them, as they were already in the squad when I arrived. Everyone knows that, but that's not a problem. I have to make the most of the squad I've got.

"In a club like this, people must understand young players are coming from very different environments with a different level of pressure. It all depends on what you expect. Are they young players who have already achieved something or are they unaccustomed to certain situations?"
