Former Inter Milan coach backs Mourinho for managerial job

Former Inter Milan coach backs Mourinho for managerial job

Former Inter Milan manager Luigi Simoni thinks Jose Mourinho is the ideal coach to reunite his former club dressing room following the damage caused by the Mauro Icardi affair.

Icardi made his first appearance in almost two months on Wednesday to help lead Inter to a 4-0 win at Genoa that strengthened their grip on third place in Serie A.

Mourinho found his relationship with senior players at Manchester United had deteriorated significantly before he was sacked last December but Simoni thinks the man who delivered the treble to San Siro in 2009-10 would be able to restore harmony to the dressing room.

"We need to rebuild the atmosphere," Simoni, who won the UEFA Cup with Inter in 1998, told FCInternews. "Mourinho would be ideal, as he was good at creating a rock-solid group during his Nerazzurri experience.

"Of course, returns are always complicated, but in the event of separation with Spalletti, whom I respect, I would bet on the Portuguese. I'm in favour of his return."

First Time

It was the first time Icardi had been involved since being stripped of the club captaincy amid reports of problems with the club's hierarchy, which left him ostracized from Luciano Spalletti's squad.

Ivan Perisic is rumoured to have had a furious argument with Argentina forward after his wife and agent, Wanda Nara, spoke on TV about "personal problems" between the team-mates.
