Mourinho furious after draw
Monday 09 November 2009
Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho was unimpressed with his team's display in yesterday's 1-1 draw against Roma in Serie A.
The outcome left Inter five points clear of second-placed Juventus, who beat Atalanta 5-2.
"It has been an awful game from everyone," said Mourinho.
"There was a team that was unable to win, another team that didn't want to win and someone else (referee) who made too many calls."
The Nerazzurri had gone into the game at the San Siro on the back of five consecutive victories but struggled to beat Roma's well-placed defence.
Mirko Vucinic put Roma ahead in the 13th minute but Samuel Eto'o earned Inter a point early in the second half.
Inter youngster Mario Balotelli, who replaced Patrick Vieira at half-time, was criticised by the coach.
"Balotelli? In my opinion he came close to a zero rating," said Mourinho.
"I didn't like how he played.
"He is 19 but could have done much better."
Mourinho did not believe the game had hurt his side in the title race, though.
"I didn't like the game," he said."The only thing that I liked was the result.
"We took a point at home against a team that has quality like Roma and that is fine."
Inter travel to Bologna next time while Juventus host Udinese.
