Internazionale coach Roberto Mancini admits it was a difficult decision to omit striker Adriano from his squad for Sunday´s Italian Super Cup final clash with Roma.

Mancini on Saturday unveiled a 20-man squad for the encounter, with Brazilian Adriano left out along with exciting 17-year-old forward Mario Balotelli.

"I´m always sorry about leaving out a player," Mancini told "This goes for Adriano and also for Balotelli. Leaving Adriano out is obviously a bit more difficult because the other (Balotelli) is a boy."
