Materazzi advises patience at Inter
The 40-year-old who was part of the Nerazzurri’s treble winning side of 2010 insisted that the former Napoli man has never failed yet as a coach, but admitted that it will be a tough test integrating so many young players.
“There is a generational change is taking place [at Inter], all the teams have had to adopt, some who choose to and others by necessity,” Materazzi told Sky Sport 24.
“Last year it happened to AC Milan, where they suffered at the beginning and in recent years is happening to Inter, especially this year.
“It will take patience I think from the fans, I know that it is never enough, but we must be patient, because when you change many players, especially when those most charismatic leave it becomes difficult to introduce young people, however, the important thing is to have good players.
“Mazzarri, at least in the first game has been shown to know what he wants, and I think that for him is a new situation, it was usually with established players, but now many young people, something that had happened a little less in his other experiences.
“But it must be said that Mazzarri has never failed as a coach, knock on wood, because I am an Inter fan.”
