Spokesman for Inter Milan coach Mourinho gets in on act: Ranieri's won nothing, Mazzarri a donkey

Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho will appeal against his fine over gestures made during their 0-0 draw with Sampdoria.

Mourinho has been banned for three weeks and will have to pay a €40,000 fine following his controversial behavior at the weekend.

"His gesture was misunderstood," said Eladio Parames, the coach's spokesman.

"It had nothing to do with the referee. He wanted to say 'take me away, put me into jail, but my team is the strongest and we will win even if we play with nine men'"

Mourinho cannot currently speak to the Press since Inter have imposed a temporary stop to communications from the club. But his spokesman did not refrain to release controversial comments.

"I would like to say to Claudio Ranieri that Jose both with Roman Abramovich's Chelsea and Massimo Moratti's Inter has won many titles.

"On the contrary Ranieri with Chelsea and Juventus, the club of the Agnelli's family has won nothing."

Parames made even more controversial comments when he spoke about Walter Mazzarri.

"A donkey will never become a stallion. When he was at Porto, Jose had a €60m budget in 2004 and despite that he won while his club spent over €57m on the transfer market.

"That is why the donkey must be taught that the transfer market represents only a side of a club's budget."
