Jose Mourinho slammed Roma after Inter Milan were held to a 1-1 draw at the San Siro yesterday.

Mirko Vucinic and Samuel Eto'o were on target as Roma held Inter at the champions' home.

“We saw three 'teams' tonight,” Mourinho told Sky Italia. “One wanted to win and didn't manage it, a second didn't want to win and therefore did not play great football, while the third 'team' blew the whistle around 50 times.

“A point at home is not a drama and it's still progress, but overall I did not like this match.”

Mourinho was scathing with his opponents, claiming Claudio Ranieri's Roma - who were leading at half-time - were negative.

“I like the point, as Roma had the quality to come here and win. I had the feeling it wouldn't be great for us so I put fresh legs in midfield, but even then in the first half the performance was poor. It was a game neither side deserved to win.

“We did improve after the break, Roma had some counter-attacks, but the referee could've given six or seven minutes of stoppages and only gave three. He wanted it over with too.”

Mourinho marked his 150th consecutive home League game unbeaten.

“That is absolutely no consolation. I knew because someone told me, but it has been a record for a long time, so 150 or 151 makes no difference.”
