Mourinho unhappy after Inter Milan's Ibrahimovic cops yellow

Despite victory over Lecce, Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho was left non-plussed after Zlatan Ibrahimovic's yellow card for diving.

"I would love to see that again on the replays, because I think that was a penalty," he said on Sky Italia after a 3-0 win at the Stadio Via del Mare.

"A few weeks ago, for asking a referee if he was 'afraid,' I was sent off and suspended. So this time I will just use the word 'strange.'

"It is strange that Ibra is brought down like that when the scoreline is still 1-0 in a delicate moment of the match and the referee goes for the yellow card.

"It is strange that, when leading at San Siro against Torino, the referee does not see a penalty in our favour.

"All of this is strange and what is even stranger is that throughout the week nobody in the media talked about this incident.

"There's nothing I can do about it. I just have to continue my work," continued Mourinho.

"I am very happy with the performance. We immediately got the game on the right track with the proper mental approach to this particular test.

"I can only compliment my players after this match."
