Mourinho will be missed - Perrotta

Roma midfielder Simone Perrotta believes Italian football will miss former Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho.

The Portuguese coach led Inter to a Serie A, Coppa Italia and Champions League treble last season before quitting the San Siro for Real Madrid.

Inter pipped Roma to the league title by just two points, but Perrotta believes the competition will be a duller place without Mourinho.

"Everything that Inter have won this year they have deserved - the championship, the Coppa Italia and the Champions League," Perrotta said in Gazzetta dello Sport.


"He (Mourinho) is a different character. Perhaps there has never been a coach with these qualities in football, both on and off the field.

"He tries to draw attention to himself to take it off the team.

"He is a winner because he won almost everything.

"We will miss his interviews and press conferences, but he went to a great team."
