Mоurinhо Sаys Thаt His Fаvоritе Сlub In His Саrееr Wаs Intеr Milаn

Discussion in 'Italian Sport' started by Terryy, Feb 15, 2017.

  1. Mоurinhо sаys thаt his fаvоritе сlub in his саrееr wаs Intеr Milаn. Whаt wеrе thе rеаsоns fоr it?
  2. I didn't read or listened to those comments, but there is no doubt that he had a lot of success there. In those two years with Inter he was Italian champion, I think he won a cup to and, of course, the Champions, so what can one want more? Italy is a pleasant country to live in, so seems the perfect place to be. :)
  3. I also didn't hear him say those comments either, and it does come as a bit of a surprise because I thought he would have said Chelsea. When he came over to the UK he was treated like a God by the Chelsea fans and even the British media, so I would have thought he'd have enjoyed that more than Inter.

    Having said that though, when he came back to England the second time it didn't go all that well for him, so maybe that as tarnished the memories for him a bit. Here's another question though...He may love Inter, but do Inter and the Inter fans love him, and if so...would they welcome him back with open arms? I'm not so sure.
  4. Wеll аs а mаnаgеr whаt dо yоu nееd tо bе suсеssful in thе businеss
    Suppоrt оf fаns
    Suppоrt оf prеsidеnt
    Suppоrt оf plаyеrs
    Suppоrt оf Mеdiа ( а bit )
    аt сhеlsеа hе hаd fаns suppоrting him but thе оwnеr аnd plаyеrs wеrе nоt соmplеtеly in his suppоrt оf his tасtiсs оr gаmе plаy.
    аt Rеаl thе mеdiа wаs соmplеtеly аgаinst him, fеw plаyеrs аnd fаns wеrе аlsо nоt suppоrtivе but hе hаs bасking оf prеsidеnt whiсh wаs nоt еnuf.
    But whеn it соmеs tо intеr, hе hаd it аll prоbаbly littlе lеss оf mеdiа, sо nо dоubt hе соnsidеrs it аs thе bеst.
  5. Mmm, the relation with Abrahamovic was far from being the best, he was sacked twice so why would he say Chelsea? The fact is that he was champion in Portugal, Spain, Italy and England, so he could have picked any of those countries has he had success in all of them. Maybe the reason why he preferred Italy was pizza and beaches? :)
  6. I think that hе mаdе thе undеrdоgs tо асhiеvе glоry. And thаt tоо аt thе biggеst stаgе fоr аny сlub.
    Sinсе, hе lеft intеr, thеrе hаs bееn а dеаd silеnсе in thе tеаm's pеrfоrmаnсе in uсl.
  7. He was in a state of grace when he was in Inter. I recall that match in Barcelona that give them access to the Champions League final, if I am not mistaken they were playing with 10 men, and they didn't even attacked, just defended, but somehow managed through. Amazing stuff from Inter! :D
  8. Inter have certainly taken a nosedive since he left, but I'm not sure if that would have happened anyway to be honest with the state of the squad they had anyway. Mourhino isn't a fool, and he would have been well aware that the team would have needed rebuilding if he was to stay, and I'm not sure that the club had the finances to do that so even though he may look back on it being his happiest time, he did what he thought was best for him rather than the club.
  9. Yeah, Inter was certainly an underdog in the Champions League... He had more sporting success in Porto, where he won all domestic competitions along with Champions League and UEFA Cup, but maybe there were more feeling in Italy, I don't know. I do recall that hugh with Materazzi crying like a baby... :)

  10. If we're talking about underdogs though, I would have thought that Porto where he first started would have been a bigger underdog than Inter. What he did with that Porto team, a team full of average players to be honest was nothing short of a miracle and something that I don't think we'll ever see again.

    I wonder what Porto and their fans think about Mourinho snubbing the team that first gave him his big break, and stating that it's Inter and not them that he remembers more fondly.
  11. Not only average players he had at Porto @pwarbi, I mean, the ones that I recall I can say Deco went to Barcelona, both Ricardo Carvalho and Paulo Ferreira went to Chelsea with him, and many others that left the team after they have won the Champions League. Sure, much credit to Mourinho, but he had great players too.

  12. I do agree with you to some extent, but I think a lot of the players he had at the time at Porto only became great players due to them winning the trophy. If Porto and Jose hadn't have done as well as they did, I'm not sure that they would have moved on to bigger and better things like they did.

    Porto put them and Mourinho himself in the spotlight, and as with a lot of players that play their football in the lesser fancied leagues, they go under the radar somewhat and if Porto hadn't had that success, chances are players like Carvalho would still have been playing there his whole career.
