Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has shrugged off the significance of Jose Mourinho welling up after winning the Scudetto on Sunday.

For many in the Italian press, it was a sure sign that Mourinho was preparing to say farewell to Inter.

Moratti scoffed: “I just got up and read the newspapers. At times it's wonderful to read something positive.”

When asked for his opinion on Mourinho's tears, Moratti replied: “In life you need to interpret everything, but those tears were also a sign of great humanity and affection towards the players and the fans.

“To satisfy the curiosity [about Mourinho's future], we'll have to wait for the end of the game against Bayern.

“Now we need to turn the page. We have a few days to prepare for the encounter.

“There is no bother. Mourinho is free to do it, being foreign, but he hasn't said what he will do.”
