AC Milan captain Paolo Maldini says he's a fan of Jose Mourinho ahead of tonight's derby against Inter.

"I like Jose Mourinho," said Maldini. "I think he came to Italy in order to continue his career trajectory that went from Porto to Chelsea and now Inter.

"With a strong personality like him at the helm, sometimes you forget that it's the players who put in the performance.

"Right now I am more concerned about the Inter attack than who is on the bench, although Mourinho is definitely different from the others in how he handles the media."
