Inter Milan furious with play-acting of Catania's Tedesco

Inter Milan were furious with the play-acting of Catania midfielder Giacomo Tedesco which led to Sulley Muntari's dismissal in yesterday's clash.

Inter managed to scrape home 2-1 after Muntari was sent-off for his clash with Tedesco.

"The referee saw that I lifted my arm and he's right in that I should not do that, but I was just protecting the ball," insisted Muntari.

"Having said that, not even a child would've fallen in such a dramatic fashion. He went to ground as if struck by Mohammed Ali!"

Inter were forced to play the entire second half with a man down after former Portsmouth man Muntari was caught lashing out an arm to free himself from Tedesco's rather too close marking.

"He has two eyes and neither of them could see Tedesco behind him," claimed Inter coach Jose Mourinho after the 2-1 win.

"I saw many DVDs from last season and understood in England Tedesco would be called someone who lacks fair play, whereas in Italy he might be considered 'intelligent.'

"I thought Tedesco was dead with all that rolling around, but he managed to recover and play in the second half."
