Delighted Mourinho Offended For Disabled Fan Gesture

Jose Mourinho reveals he was offended by the mayor of Reggio Calabria after the game against Reggina for giving a gift to a disabled fan as a gesture of goodwill...
The 'Special One' was seen giving something to a disabled Reggina fan and he was criticised for it by Giuseppe Scpelliti, the mayor of the Calabrian city, who said Mourinho had offended everyone by giving the fan some money.

However, the coach has explained what happened and he reveals he didn't give the supporter any money but rather a crucifix pendant which was given to him by his wife.

"The Mayor accused me of giving money to a disabled child but in reality I gave the fan a crucifix which my wife had given me and I kept it with me for four years," Mourinho told Sky Sport Italia after the game.

"My wife had brought the crucifix for me as a present in Fatima. I feel insulted by the mayor because he said I wanted to give money to the child. I am unlucky because even when I try to do something good, I get criticised."

Inter won the game 3-2 thanks to Ivan Cordoba's last minute strike and the coach believes his side deserved the win.

"We played a great game and after the 2-2 we reacted fantastically by playing excellent football and creating plenty of chances," added the coach.

"It's an important result for us and the goal makes the difference between one point and three. I am happy with the work the lads put in. We played a fantastic game and we deserved the three points."

Inter are currently top of Serie A but have played a game more than Udinese and Napoli who play tomorrow.
