Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says he enjoyed working with Mario Balotelli when they were together at Inter Milan.

Balotelli is now with AC Milan and been linked with Chelsea.

"It was great fun, I always thought that was great fun and I have good memories of that," said Mourinho.

"Obviously with a kid like him - when he was a kid, maybe now he is a bit different - at that time you have your ups and downs and we had our ups and downs. But at the end of the day I enjoyed it, I think he enjoyed it too.

"He learned a few things - or not! - but he enjoyed it too and he was a Champions League winner at eighteen-years-old."
