Figo backs Mourinho appointment at Inter Milan

Luis Figo has welcomed the prospect of Jose Mourinho being named new Inter Milan coach.

"Everybody knows about Mourinho's contract," said Figo in an interview with Portuguese newspaper O Jogo. "I have already been informed of it by Inter.

"He can win the Champions League with this team and I would like to be a part of it, even if I still have not spoken to him about it."

Figo has been linked with a move away from San Siro, but that may change now Mancini has left.

"I don't know where I will play next year," Figo admitted. "My contract expires in May and I want to play for another year."
