Costinha To Assist Jose Mourinho At Inter - Report

Midfielder Costinha has opted to terminate his contract with club side Atalanta in a move that will be made official within the next few days. His next career venture could be to assist his former coach Jose Mourinho at Inter.

Costinha joined Atalanta in 2007 after being released by Atletico Madrid, but has barely featured over two seasons due to injury and poor form. At the age of 34, he will likely hang up his boots.

According to a report in Tuttosport, he will sign as an assistant to Jose Mourinho at Inter this summer.

The two worked together at Porto and Costinha was a key member of the squad that won the Champions League in 2004, scoring the goal that eliminated Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Costinha has visited the San Siro on a few occasions this season to speak with 'The Special One' and the two are known to be good friends.
