thumbnail Hello,

The ‘Special One’ has launched yet another attack on Italian football.

Inter boss Jose Mourinho has reiterated his claim that the Calcio powers that be have conspired to re-open the Serie A title race.

The Portuguese was fined €18,000 in January after saying “they won’t let us wrap up the league early” in the wake of a hot-tempered 2-0 win over city rivals Milan.

Mourinho has not spoken to the Italian media for over a month, since his infamous handcuffs gesture during a 0-0 draw with Sampdoria.

But he broke his silence last night and, when asked on the Inter Channel of Roma and Milan’s challenge for the Scudetto, he smirked: “I don’t want to talk about the league. But it’s not a three-horse race. It’s a fight of one team against many other things…”

Mourinho received a three-match touchline ban for his antics in the game with Samp, and added: “I have not explained it to my son. He is a football fan, but I want him to be in love with what is the real football.

“I don’t want him to understand that there are other things in football, because if he understands that now that he is 10, he certainly won’t be fascinated by it any longer.”

Inter still top the Serie A standings with seven games to go but have seen their lead whittled down to a single point by Roma in recent weeks while Milan sit three points behind their city rivals.
