Inter Milan boss
I Nerazzurri were dominant in their 4-0 win over 14th placed Cagliari on Tuesday night, so much so that the away side failed to register any shot on goal throughout the game.
“We had to continued to be cautious of Cagliari, and by attacking them at the side, that forced them to play through the centre.”
“I think a player like him shouldn’t be happy,” he told Mediaset Premium (as quoted by ESPN). “It’s true 25 goals are a lot and he is learning to track back to tighten up the team, so he got a lot of touches.
“Anyone who says he just has to stand there and score goals is hurting him, because if he helps out then he’ll score twice as many.

“If he just stands there, it’s easier for the defenders to mark him. If he comes back, spaces are created.”
