Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho has ruled out a move for Zenit St Petersburg midfielder Andrei Arshavin.

"Arshavin is a fine player, but is he mature enough to play in one of Europe's top countries?" Mourinho mused in the Daily Mail.

"He showed a lot of inspiration at the European Championship against Sweden and Holland, but he seemed to absolutely switch off in the next match against Spain.

"At Inter we are looking for players who are capable of playing to the highest standards not for two or five games in a row, but for the entire season."
