Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has opened the door to a sensational return to Inter Milan. Mourinho spoke with Sky Italia after victory over APOEL and was delighted to see his former Inter defender Marco Materazzi in the studio.

"There's my brother in the studio? Hello, brother!" laughed José. "I miss Marco so much, now we are close. I will always be his friend. For me, a brother for life, he will surely be happy for our 3-0 today."

Asked about the crisis at Inter, Mourinho continued: "I do not know Andrea Stramaccioni, but since I am an Inter fan I hope that he is a success for all the fans. I had faith in Claudio Ranieri and I'm sorry he's left, but in football when things go wrong it is the coach who pays. Now I hope Stramaccioni does well."

Then Mourinho went on: "I hope that (director) Lele Oriali returns to Inter, as he must return. And who knows, one day I may return, too.

"Going home is always possible for me and Lele."
