Internazionale star Adriano has insisted that he did not foul Cesare Natali in the build up to his winning goal in a 3-2 win over Atalanta, but his own coach disagrees.
Adriano believes that his winner was cleanly taken, but Inter coach Roberto Mancini thinks that Natali may have a case.
"For my goal I just shot the ball, I didn't have any contact with Natali," insisted Adriano.
"We didn't play too well, but I think we showed that we are not lacking spirit."
Mancini believes that his side deserved victory, but is not adamant that his striker is right about the winner.
"Adriano's winner? I think there was probably contact with Natali," said Mancini.
"I think we deserved to win. In the first half we started positively, then we made a mistake to let them back in.
"In the second half we recovered and Adriano was good."
