Ausilio: “Mancini happy with response”

MILAN – Just a few minutes before kick-off between Inter and Udinese, Nerazzurri sporting director Piero Ausilio found time to speak to Sky Sport Italia.

“It’s great to see Stramaccioni and Stankovic again, though it’s quite strange them being on the opposing team,” began Ausilio.

The subject of conversation soon turned to the transfer market: “My trip to London? Well, I finally got the chance to see something, because I’ve not had much time this year. Going to watch matches and players is part of my job.

“Mancini is still assessing his squad. He’s working on the lads and is happy with the way they’re reacting to that. When the Christmas break comes round in two weeks’ time, we’ll weigh up whether there’s work to do,” he concluded.
