Mazzarri: Kovacic needs to play defense as well

The young talent of Inter, Mateo Kovacic , talked about his difficult time at Inter: “This year, I’ve played less, I did not expect that. Mazzarri prefer to defend than to attack” .
Harsh words, pronounced by Mateo Kovacic at the Inter coach Walter Mazzarri. The young talent is in fact playing less for his club, and attributed the ‘blame’ to the footballing philosophy of the coach Walter Mazzarri .

“I haven’t played for a while, but I feel good. – Said the Inter midfielder – With Stramaccioni I’ve played, but now I get only from the bench, I did not expect that. It’s not for me to comment on the decisions of the coach, for sure he prefers a style to play more defensive, and I like the more attacking football.”

There would be no fundamental incompatibility between the Croatian whizkid and his coach, but Kovacic is determined to climb the hierarchy: “I have to get used to his game, I have no choice. – He said – But I need time. it’s a difficult time for me but I think that I will soon rise again.”

On question if Kovacic can start with Hernanes from the first minute, Mazzarri said:
“If they play that means no Guarin, the best solution is that from time to time I choose the ones that are better. Kovacic against AC Milan played well, so do not rule out anything, not even to play all three (Hernanes, Guarin and Kovacic) together.”

In the 2013-14 season he made his debut in the match of Italian Cup Inter-Citadel that finished 4-0 for Inter entering in 58′. The first appearance in the championship is the first game when Inter won 2-0 against Genoa, entering just a few minutes before the final whistle. On November 9, 2013 in the home game when Inter won 2-0 against Livorno, he gives his first season assist to Yuto Nagatomo for the final 2-0 at the end of the second half.

On 31 January 2013, thanks to the lawyer Giuseppe Bozzo, he moved to Inter, signing a four-year contract with the Nerazzurri with the 1.1 million euros salary plus bonuses: Dinamo Zagreb should be linked to the 11 million plus 4 bonus (2 million over the next four years if Inter gets to qualify at least twice in the Champions League and 2 million if he manages to win two championships in four years and a half)
