Mourinho: Inter Milan self-belief saw off Cagliari
"This was an important victory, especially as it takes us 10 points clear of second place," said Mourinho.
"Cagliari are not an easy side to face and even when 2-0 down they never gave in, creating quite a few problems for us.
"We remained solid and compact to ensure we kept a clean sheet. I was particularly impressed with Goran Pandev, he's in great shape."
