Cracks appearing at Inter as Mourinho's troubles mount

All is not going as swimmingly as Jose Mourinho would like in his first season as Internazionale manager. It started well with the former Chelsea boss leading his team to the top of Serie A and making serene progress in the Champions League.

However, cracks have appeared with Mourinho suggesting he would, at some point, like to return to England to manage. He has also been critical of some of the media coverage he has received in Italy. His side have lost top spot to Milan and could only draw with Famagusta in the Champions League. Inter and Udinese, who are tied for second a point behind Milan, meet at the San Siro tomorrow. Inter edged out a 3-2 victory over lowly Reggina last week thanks to an injury-time goal after having drawn their previous two league matches.

Udinese have the best attack in the league with 19 goals and the joint-best defense alongside Milan and Juventus, with just seven goals conceded.

Juve have also had a difficult start to the season but are coming into tomorrow's game against Chievo Verona on a five-game winning streak that includes three league victories and two Champions League wins over Real Madrid.
