Internazionale coach Roberto Mancini admitted 10-man Parma deserved at least a point from his side´s 3-2 win after his 200th game in charge of the Nerazzurri ended in controversy on Sunday.

The visitors had been leading 2-1 until the 87th minute when referee Andrea Gervasoni awarded a highly controversial penalty - after Fernando Couto was sent off after appearing to have handled Zlatan Ibrahimovic´s shot on the line - which the Sweden striker slotted home then added a stoppage-time winner.

"We didn´t have a great game," Mancini told Sky Italia. Parma certainly deserved the draw. We undervalued the game, even though we knew that Parma are playing well, then to recover from that became difficult."
