Mazzarri left frustrated by Inter Milan draw

Inter Milan coach Walter Mazzari was left frustrated with their 1-1 draw against Atalanta.

The Nerazzurri took the lead against the run of play with Ricky Alvarez, then German Denis equalised.

"In my view we deserved to win," Mazzarri told Sky Sport Italia.

"If you look at the scoring opportunities, then we created more than Atalanta this evening, especially in the second half. We need to be more clinical and sharp in attack.

"We also have to improve our attitude and score more goals in this period that we're missing Diego Milito. We were naive to give away a goal when in front. We have many aspects to improve upon in order to battle for the top spots.

"Atalanta are a strong side and I complimented Stefano Colantuono. Denis is one of the best centre-forwards in Italy. He didn't play that much for me at Napoli, but when he did he was always ready. Now he has consistency, regular playing time and therefore more goals."
