"Up until now I have only worked with him and he is certainly an excellent Coach," said the brother of Milan legend Franco.
"I have great enthusiasm and it is fantastic for me to work with him and learn, writing and analysing the many notes on the process. I think Mourinho is the best, even if I don't really know the other tacticians.
"He is very open and eager for a debate. He asked for me as his assistant so I could help him settle into the club and get to know the people who work here. He has been innovative in training and organisation.
"Am I the best assistant manager around? Not right now, but sticking with Mourinho I could get there."
