Premiership return looms after Inter Milan's Mourinho clashes with journo

Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho's row with local journalists is escalating. The ex-Chelsea boss has been threatened with legal action for his foul-mouthed attack on the reporter after his Inter Milan side drew 1-1 at Atalanta on Sunday.

The Sun says Mourinho, 46, watched the game from the stands as he served a touchline ban and was later said to have called Andrea Ramazzotti "a son of a whore" and "a s**t" when confronted alongside the Inter team bus.

As the incident escalated, the Special One - who has been linked with Manchester City should Mark Hughes be ousted - allegedly pushed Ramazzotti and told him to "f**k off back to the Press room".

Luigi Ferraiolo, president of the Italian sports journalists' association, blasted: "The physical and verbal attack by Mourinho on our colleague marks one of the lowest and most alarming moments in the relationship between football and the media."

Meanwhile, it's reported this morning that Inter president Massimo Moratti spoke to Ramazzotti and his newspaper, Corriere dello Sport, to say "sorry" for the affair.
