Hernanes happy to work with Mazzarri

Hernanes has welcomed the news that Walter Mazzarri will stay on as Inter Coach next season.

The former Napoli boss guided the Nerazzurri to fifth in the table last season, and as such, had been rumoured to be on his way out following Erick Thohir’s takeover.

But with those stories vehemently denied by the club, the playmaker has insisted that they can now concentrate on the upcoming season.

“I’m glad that Thohir has full confidence in Mazzarri,” he is reported as saying by FCInterNews.

“He’s a great Coach – one with clear ideas.

“I also think the purchase of Vidic is a great one. These sorts of players are the ones who can take us to the next level.

“I think, in fact I’m sure, that this is just the beginning for Inter. The owner has ambitious plans.”

The Brazil international then commented on his substitutes role for the national team at this summer’s World Cup.

“The Coach has asked me to concentrate on the bench, because I can come on and be a valuable addition to the team.

“I’ve accepted this role with a great enthusiasm.”
