Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho continued his testy relationship with Mario Balotelli after victory over Catania.

Mourinho stated this week that he only picked Balotelli through lack of alternatives, as he had trained poorly.

And yesterday he said: "I do not want to talk about Balotelli as an individual. I am satisfied with the overall team performance and the three points.

"He does not ask for an explanation, nor does he behave differently towards me. All professionals need to work hard and prove themselves on the field, that is all."
