Andrea Stramaccioni: Believes his Inter side made a 'big step forward'

Trailing 3-0 from the first leg, the Italian outfit thrashed Tottenham 4-1 at the San Siro, but ended up exiting the competition on the away-goals rule, with Emmanuel Adebayor's extra-time strike proving decisive.

The 37-year-old has now called on his players to show the same kind of spirit for the remainder of the season as they look to qualify for next season's Champions League.

He told Sky Italia: "This is a fundamental sign we send today and the only positive I can see from this evening is that we won't have midweek games to worry about. It was our best performance of the season.

"The team shook off its fear and always held the initiative. It's a shame about the result, as we conceded after so many scoring opportunities.

"Playing 120 minutes at an incredible level of intensity is tough, but I saw a team that made a big step forward today.

"Now we have a mini-tournament to play in the final ten Serie A games. We've got Sampdoria on Sunday, then Juventus after that.

"The important thing is that today Inter gave their response, showed that we are united and that we won't be broken by the criticism."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
