Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho has again defended Juventus counterpart Ciro Ferrara after last night's Coppa Italia triumph.

The Bianconeri were leading up until the 70th minute, when Lucio and Mario Balotelli turned the quarter-final around.

"We are men, we have families and it's not nice all this talk of every other Coach," slammed Mourinho on RAI.

"Ferrara deserves respect. If the club decides to make a change, we know that is part of our job, but at least while we are still on the bench and working we deserve respect.

"Right now nobody is giving Ferrara respect. Nobody. But I respect him."
