Ex-Inter Chief Backs Mourinho to Build Legacy in Rome

Former Inter president Massimo Moratti has backed Jose Mourinho to build a legacy in Rome following reports of an exit after the Special One’s recent comments. The Roma coach, in a recent press interview, commented: “I still have a year, but football contracts aren’t everything.”

Speaking to Rai Radio 1 in an exclusive talk, the ex-Nerazzurri chief revealed his wish to see Mourinho stay put at the Stadio Olimpico (via Calciomercato).

“I hope he stays in Rome, I see him doing well there in the future.”

Moratti also explained what would have happened if Mourinho had stayed at Inter instead of moving to Real Madrid.

“I’m sure he would have done well in his third year. Mourinho made everything easy, but winning never is. He’s an intelligent, pragmatic person. He never gets complacent and always conveys such idea.”

Mourinho and Moratti enjoyed a fruitful two-year stint at Inter, winning a historic treble in 2009/10 before the manager left to take over Real Madrid in Spain.
