Lo Monaco has defended Italian football after Mourinho's jibes said the sport was not attracting fans abroad.
"Is our football not appreciated abroad? That's just nonsense - Jose likes to be a provocateur," the Lo Monaco told Tuttomercatoweb.
"He loves sensationalism and that's what he has been doing ever since he arrived in Italy. Calcio has a great following, whatever he says.
"I don't feel the need to reconcile with Mourinho. We have already said everything and I have nothing more to say about him."
