The 51-year-old still feels he made the right decision to join the Nerazzurri and is keen to help them back to the top again as he builds a team for the future
The Nerazzurri have been struggling during pre-season, while their delicate financial situation has prevented them from making any high-profile signings, yet Mazzarri, 51, remains adamant that he made the right choice in moving to San Siro.
"Of course I would make the same decision again if given the chance to go back in time," Mazzarri told Corriere dello Sport.
"There's no reason why I would not join Inter. The president's words made the difference for me. What he said to me made me decide to come here.
"We had a great discussion and he ignited a fire in me that's really motivated me. We understood each other right away.
"I was told that we can start from zero I will get the chance to build a team for the future. We might need some time, though. I want to take Inter back to where they belong."
Inter had to settle for ninth spot in the Serie A table last term.
