Mancini: Mourinho Won UCL with a Team I Built

MOST COMMENTED

Galatasaray coach Roberto Mancini insists that Inter Milan would not have won the UEFA Champions League in 2010 had it not been for him. The former Inter and Manchester City boss left the San Siro in 2008, only for Jose Mourinho to take over and win an historic treble for the Nerazzurri two years later.

“Mourinho won the Champions League with Inter because he inherited a good squad,” Mancini said ahead of his team’s Champions League Round of 16 game with Mourinho’s Chelsea on Wednesday. “A squad that, in the same way as it is at Manchester City, I built. It was a team that had a very strong mentality. When I arrived at Inter, they played a poor brand of soccer. I changed that.”

Asked about his team’s chances of defeating Chelsea over two games, Mancini said: “We don’t have a great chance, even at home, because Chelsea is one of the best teams in Europe. But it gives us great pride to be able to play Chelsea and we need to do our best.”
