Walter Mazzarri: Enjoying life at Inter Milan

Having finished a dismal ninth last season under Andrea Stramaccioni, Inter currently occupy the second Europa League qualifying place as they lie fifth in the table.

They trail leaders Juventus by 15 points but Napoli, in the third Champions League spot, by only five and veteran Javier Zanetti earlier told Gazzetta dello Sport that catching the latter and rejoining Europe's elite was a realistic aim.

"Yes, because the league is balanced," said the Argentinian. "At Napoli I did not see a big difference between the two teams."

Mazzarri told Sky Italia: "It has been excellent.

"Looking at the standings, we could have had four or five more points for what we have expressed on the field.

"There has been more here to give me grey hair than in other teams I have been at but I am lucky to be here.

"Inter is a club every club dreams about but I arrived at a particular time in the history of the club. I would have loved to come in to a different situation but I have shown I can take on any challenge.

"I have always had to work hard for everything, I have never had it easy but I am very pleased and satisfied with what I have achieved in my life."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
