Mourinho: 'Moratti is ideal President'

Jose Mourinho has hailed Inter patron Massimo Moratti. “He is an incredible man and shows the football world what a President should be.”

The former Nerazzurri Coach spoke out after the Champions League exit to Schalke, 7-3 on aggregate, and Moratti's open letter thanking the players for their efforts.

“The words of President Moratti really moved me and remind me that he is an incredible man,” declared Real Madrid manager Mourinho.

“In these sad days for Inter's Champions League elimination, taking the time to thank the players is truly fantastic.

“These are words that show the football world what a President should be. All Inter fans ought to be proud to have a President like him.”

Mourinho is preparing for tonight's El Clasico with Barcelona, but infuriated the media when he attended a Press conference and refused to speak.

Around three-quarters of the attending journalists walked out in protest when it became clear he would not be answering questions, instead letting his assistant manager do the talking.
