Inter Milan boss Mourinho: I've plenty to learn

Jose Mourinho insists he still has plenty to learn as he enjoys his first preseason as Inter Milan coach.

"There are many great tacticians in Italy and I am here to learn, not to act like a professor," he told Inter Channel.

"Only those who think they know everything are truly ignorant. I want to learn something new every day, it's the type of person I am.

"It is a privilege for me to work in Italy and a competition like Serie A, facing teams with great Coaches. The day I think I know everything and have nothing left to learn is the day I'll stop coaching."

The former Chelsea boss also remarked: "Our challenge is not to do well now, but rather in the first official games. I am certain at that moment the team will have everything it needs to do well.

"At times I think it is better to play badly, as then you can work on your mistakes the day after. It is also important to face teams in better shape than you, so we organised friendlies against Juventus - who are preparing for the Champions League preliminary round - Bayern Munich and Benfica, whose Leagues start soon.

"I don't want a friendly where we win 10-0 and newspapers write that Mourinho's Inter play incredible football. The objective is only to keep improving."
