Marco Andreolli has expressed delight at his return to Inter Milan and is relishing the chance to work under new coach Walter Mazzarri.

Andreolli left Inter for Roma as a 21-year-old in 2007 and has spent subsequent spells at Vicenza, Sassuolo and Chievo before opting to return to San Siro on a free transfer.

And the former Italy Under-21 centre-half is eager for the new season to get under way as Inter look to improve on last term's disappointing ninth-place finish.

He told a press conference: "For me it's a homecoming. I remember the day I left, I was really sad to be leaving Inter and it's great to be back after so many years.

"I have improved and I have a real sense of pride to be back here.

"I always wanted to come back and have worked hard for it."

Mazzarri was brought in by Inter this summer after guiding Napoli to second in Serie A last season.

The 51-year-old had an impressive record in Naples and has already made a good impression on Andreolli.

He added: "I have been struck by his will and determination.

"Also, I would like to emphasise the desire of the champions in the squad. They all have the desire to improve and are the leaders of the group."

couple of wins and everything is OK! Sorry you still haven't got a striker who can consistently goals. Keep searching. I don't think Liverpool will make top four not even Europa League this time around.

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
