Inter Milan Speak On Jose Mourinho Return
Inter Milan have declared that the club will not be replacing Luciano Spalletti with Jose Mourinho, stating further that it remain committed to the Italian boss.
Mourinho, won two Serie A titles and the Champions League with the Italian club, departed Manchester United earlier this month, and his availability coupled with Spalletti’s struggles led to plenty of rumours.
However, the club’s Sporting director Piero Ausillo has denied having interest in the Portuguese coach earlier this month, and has reiterated that Spalletti still has the club’s backing.
Goal.com quoted Ausilio as telling Sky Sports Italia that Spalletti isn’t going anywhere:
“Mourinho? He is not a shadow. It does not surprise me that we talk about him in a time when media and everyone need to say something.
“We work in a more rational way. Our project has been ongoing for a year-and-a-half with Spalletti and will go on with him for many years.
“[Club owners] Suning [Holdings Group] is ambitious. They want an Inter that returns to winning ways, not one that is content to be second, third or fourth.
“What we can say to the fans is that we are working hard to get Inter back to winning ways as soon as possible.”
