Inter President Massimo Moratti: Jose Mourinho Betrayed Us

Massimo Moratti claims that Jose Mourinho betrayed Inter.
Inter president Massimo Moratti has taken a dig at Jose Mourinho for leaving the Nerazzurri in the summer and joining Real Madrid.

Mourinho was appointed the Inter coach in the summer of 2008 and after winning the Scudetto in 2008-09, he led the Beneamata to a historic treble in 2009-10.

However, the Portuguese left the Italian champions in the summer when Madrid came calling under controversial circumstances and now Inter president Moratti says that Mourinho betrayed them.

“It was like a husband cheating on his wife, but seeing as he cares for her and doesn’t have the courage to admit to it, he climbed out the window,” Moratti is quoted as saying by

Moratti was then asked if Mourinho's situation was similar to that of Helenio Herrera, who left Inter for rivals Roma in order to take a then-enormous pay increase.

“Is Mourinho like Herrera? Football has changed,” said the president.

“The coaches didn’t used to be on the transfer market, but now they are. Mourinho and Herrera do have many things in common: they are genial, professional, but above all do hard work.

“‘Il Mago’ worked so much and the same can be said of Mourinho.”
