The Portuguese tactician and the current Tottenham Hotspur coach spoke to La Gazzetta dello Sport about his relationship with the club and the players and why he immediately left after the campaign.

Tagliavento: 'If I'd had VAR in my career...'

Former referee Paolo Tagliavento admits VAR would’ve allowed him to avoid ‘the five worst errors of my career,’ including the infamous Sulley Muntari phantom goal.

That incident was one of the main reasons why goal-line technology was introduced, as during a Scudetto showdown at San Siro in February 2012, Muntari’s shot for Milan was palmed away by Gigi Buffon, but only after it had crossed the Juventus line.

The Derby that inspired Inter's Treble

Football Italia Chief Correspondent Richard Hall looks back at where Jose Mourinho’s Treble-winning Inter came to life, with a 4-0 Derby della Madonnina triumph.

The opening day draw with Bari was a shock in the 2009-10 season. It had taken a Samuel Eto’o penalty to claw the Nerazzurri back into the game after Vitalii Kutuzov had put the home side in front. The Champions scratched their heads as they had also suffered defeat in the Supercoppa Italiana in China against Lazio. Jose Mourinho was very much aware that his team needed a response, especially as the next game was the Derby Della Madonnina.
