Mourinho urges Inter Milan players to help Ibrahimovic win Golden Boot

Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho wants more than just the Scudetto this season.

After victory over Siena last night, Mourinho called on his players to also help Zlatan Ibrahimovic win the Golden Boot.

"I was happy with the performance, as the team didn't joke around, they took this match seriously," said the Coach after a 3-0 victory over Siena.

"This success completes our celebrations and now we can all relax and enjoy it. It was important to win tonight, otherwise the party would've seemed pointless. That professionalism and hard work is our strength.

"I was annoyed on the touchline as well today, as [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic can still win the Capocannoniere title. That is not just prestige for him, but for the club, so everyone has to play to create goals for him."

Mourinho admitted he was upset that the squad insisted on going to Piazza Duomo in an open-top bus last night after Milan's defeat mathematically secured the Scudetto.

"Julio Cesar was very important in convincing me to let them do that," grinned the Coach. "He is a wonderful goalkeeper and a man who lives everything very intensely. He cries easily!"
