Zanetti: Inter need to improve

The experienced Argentine has admitted that they can't afford to keep on disappointing their home fans, while laughing at the media's criticism
Javier Zanetti has stressed that Inter will have to improve at home if they are to be successful in the 2012-13 campaign.

The Nerazzurri were beaten 3-1 by Roma at the Giuseppe Meazza after previously drawing at home against Vaslui and losing against Hajduk Split, and the veteran defender feels they have to step up their game in front of their own fans.

"We need to improve our performances at the San Siro, but we've made a lot of changes and of course things can be difficult at the start. We need to get back to our best in front of our own fans," Zanetti stated to Mediaset.

Inter were heavily criticised after their loss to Roma, and Zanetti was not impressed with the harsh words aimed at the Nerazzurri.

"Do I think the media went a bit overboard with their comments after our defeat against Roma? It made me laugh.

"Everyone saw the game, Inter played well until a point, then something happened and we couldn't score a goal."

The 2010 Champions League winners resume match action away against Torino after the international break.
