The Inter de Milan coach Jose Mourihno has been charged by the Italian Football Federation for the comments that he made early this week on a press conference about Juventus after a draw the team had against Roma on Sunday, where a decision of a controversial penalty granted the 3-3 at the end of the game.
Mourinho stated that some Italian teams were taking advantage of some referees’ decisions; this comment came after the Juventus coach Claudio Ranieri expressed that he sympathized with his counterpart Luciano Spaletti, Roma’s coach, referring to the draw against Inter; this was taken very seriously by Mourihno, who was very upset after some rumors said that Inter was in the top of Serie A thanks to some “mistakes” done by the referees in the games that they had played.
In the press conference, Mourihno also said that none of the teams that are behind the Inter of Milan are going to win anything at the end of the season by this intellectual manipulation intended to manipulate public opinion even though they have great players; when he was referring to those teams he said that the Juventus has won many points due to refereeing mistakes and this brought the discontent of La Vecchia Signora’s franchise, which is now claiming that Mourihno has to apologize in public for those arguments.
“Having carefully read the serious statements made by the Inter coach, Juventus express shock and disdain and ask Inter to publicly disassociate themselves from such opinions,” read the statement on the team’s official website. “With his comments, the Inter coach has shown a lack of respect not only to Juventus and their 14 million fans, but to the whole of Italian football”.
The statement also says that the Inter’s coach has to be more careful and responsible for the public arguments that he makes, because they can be taken very seriously by the Italian football fans and clubs.
The Inter manager now is in the middle of a media storm that comes and goes. This is not the first time that Mourihno and Ranieri have a discrepancy and say things to one another. Ranieri has been criticizing Mourinho’s negative to speak with the Italian media after a match, and during this last dispute he admitted that he had something personal against the Portuguese coach since 2004, when Mourihno replaced him as Chelsea’s boss.
This Wednesday on a statement done by the Italian Football Federation, they explained that their president would decide on Thursday the charge that the Inter coach would receive since the federal prosecutor, Stefano Palazzi, cited Mourihno for the violation of the article 5.1 for the comments that he made to the media. In addition, two players have received penalties as well; Inter striker Mario Balotelli has been charged for making some offensive gestures to an opposing player, and Daniele de Rosi from Roma is going to be charged for the comments that he made against the referees too. Now the federation has to decide whether they will be charged with a fine or a ban for these violations.
