Roma coach Ranieri: Mourinho great for Italian football

Roma coach Claudio Ranieri insists he still likes Inter Milan rival Jose Mourinho, despite last night's furious clash.

Ranieri and Mourinho traded insults after the 1-1 draw, with Mirko Vucinic scoring for Roma and Samuel Eto'o grabbing Inter Milan's goal.

Former Chelsea boss Ranieri added in the end of a passionate post-match interview: "I put Mourinho on his own level as a Coach and communicator. He's amazing because he turns everything around so he's always right.

"He is doing very well in Italy and bringing a lot of attention to Serie A, so anyone who does that makes me happy.

"It's not true I dislike him. Of course every now and then there is a bit of spice, he says I'm 70 and that I won a little cup, actually I won four and one of them was when he was only an assistant manager at Barcelona."
