Mancini is taking Inter places, winning four out of four games, as the Serie A club neutralized Chievo today.
Icardi condemned Chievo to their first defeat of the season, as his goal before the interval was the difference at Verona.
You can call Inter lucky, but they’re stronger defence kept out the hosts, with Mancini’s men having conceded a goal so far.
“Our position for now does not change things, but it’s important to be up there in the league,” he told reporters.
“The key thing was to pass it in a difficult ground such as the Bentegodi, where we suffered and struggled against a Chievo side in great shape and who are very good at defending.
“I am satisfied with the performance of the boys because it was very hot and the opposition were all behind the ball. It was not easy.”
