Mancini happy with his strikers

Inter Milan manager Roberto Mancini believes Stevan Jovetic has found his scoring boots again following the striker's brace against Udinese on Saturday.

Jovetic re-opened his account with a double in Inter's 3-1 victory over Serie A strugglers Udinese, having last scored in the reverse fixture back in December last year.

Eder Citadin Martins also scored his first goal for the Nerazzurri since his arrival from Sampdoria at the beginning of the season.

"Not only did [Jovetic] score two goals, he can do a lot more and he knows that," Mancini told Mediaset Premium.

"Tonight everyone did well, we played a really good game. We signed Eder because we hoped he'd score goals, but unfortunately until now he had been putting in good performances without any luck.

"I'm glad he got his first goal and hopefully he can now play with less pressure.

"We had to win in order to keep a faint glimmer of hope alive, because strange things happen in football. Are there regrets? Let's wait for that. People are trying to make out we've had a disastrous season, but that is not the case.

The former Manchester City manager also believes his side can still catch Roma and steal third place, if they drop points against title challengers Napoli on Monday night.

"Roma are having an extraordinary run, losing just once since Luciano Spalletti took over, and probably deserve to be in third place. We have to hope Napoli win against them on Monday."
