FURIOUS Inter Milan coach Roberto Mancini cancelled his players' day off and ordered them in for an early morning training session yesterday after they were held to a 1-1 home draw by bottom-of-the-table Parma.

Inter confirmed that the first team had trained at 8.30am local time, with Mancini angry at his players' attitude after Saturday's draw left them joint ninth alongside Genoa and 10 points adrift of the European places.

"I'm sorry that the situation, instead of improving, has worsened," Mancini said. "You always hope that things will change," he added. "The last four weeks have been very bad, especially in terms of the results and also because of the second half performance (against Parma)."
