Former Inter Milan chief Lele Oriali says Jose Mourinho will always be regarded as a club legend.

The Real Madrid coach has ruled out a return to Inter this summer, though kept the door open to a future reunion.

Oriali recalled: "The photos of Barcelona with us embracing I've got on the phone ... Unforgettable moments, beautiful.

"The adoration for Mourinho is there because after 45 years he took Inter to the top of the world. Indeed, he promised a month before (the Champions League final) this would be a good year."
