Barcelona striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic admitted Jose Mourinho was the difference as Inter Milan won their Champions League semifinal 3-1.

The Swede had complained about Mourinho's tactics when walking away, but admitted things have changed.

He said: “Inter play well and are more compact, but they have a different mentality and now believe that they can win. I play for Barcelona and believe in my team, so obviously the second leg will be the decider.

“Compared to when I was at Inter, they now attack a lot more. They have some great talents and also confidence, as the win over Chelsea really boosted their European mentality.

“Anything can still happen, but I have a lot of faith in Barcelona. If Inter can score two or three at home, then we can score four or five.”
