Inter yet to give Mourinho 'indelible memories'
Thursday 24 September 2009
Internazionale coach Jose Mourinho claims his achievements in Italy do not rank among his career highlights. The Portuguese coach has won the Champions League with former club FC Porto and enjoyed great success at Chelsea.
He led Inter to the Serie A title last season - his first in Italy - but Mourinho claims he is yet to make a massive impact with the Nerazzurri.
"Among (the career highlights) are certainly the draw against Sporting Lisbon with a ten-man Uniao Leiria, then the UEFA Cup I won with Porto in 2003 and the first league title with Chelsea," Mourinho recalled. "As for Inter, I don't have indelible memories yet because I am an ambitious person and always hungry.
"I want new challenges and new conquests. And only then will they be imprinted in my memory."
Elsewhere, Fiorentina striker Alberto Gilardino has been hit with a two-match Champions League ban.
The Italy striker was sent off for elbowing Lyon's Jeremy Toulalan during last week's matchday one 1-0 defeat and UEFA have now decided to double the automatic one-match ban.
Gilardino will now miss La Viola's next two group stage games against Liverpool and Debrecen before returning against the Hungarian champions when they visit Florence.
"UEFA's disciplinary commission has given Alberto Gilardino a two-match suspension after his sending off against Lyon," confirmed a statement. "The player will be able to play on November 4 at the Artemio Franchi against Debrecen."
