Internazionale president Massimo Moratti insists the decision to sack coach Roberto Mancini was not "done on a whim" and that it was "for the benefit of the club".

Mancini´s contract was terminated on Thursday night despite the former Italy striker having recently led the club to a third successive Serie A title under his command, and Moratti admitted on Saturday that Mancini´s apparent willingness to walk out midway through the season had left its mark.

He told the Corriere della Sera newspaper: "This created imbalances within the team that forced everyone, managers and players included, to double and triple their energies. It´s true that we all rowed in the same direction, but we were forced to row harder."
