Mourinho Says Keep Ranieri And Don’t Hire AVB

Jose Mourinho has advised Inter Milan against appointing his former assistant Andre Villas-Boas, according to reports in Italy.

Mourinho is said to still be in constant contact with Inter president Massimo Moratti and he has advised him that Inter needs a similar overhaul to Chelsea – and AVB does not have the man-management skills to handle players.

Mourinho even gave public support to Claudio Ranieri, another former Stamford Bridge manager who he has clashed with in the past. The Special One told Italian TV:

“Advice for Moratti? I am a fan like everyone else and want to see Inter do well but Moratti knows better than anyone what to do. The players are good, they have a lot to give and Ranieri is a coach with a lot of experience who can calmly start a new season.”

Atletic Madrid coach Marcelo Bielsa is now the favourite to replace Claudio Ranieri at the end of the season with former player Laurent Blanc and now Catania boss Vincenzo Montella also in the running.

Mourinho and AVB, who was sacked by Chelsea earlier this month, are no longer in touch since Villas-Boas left the Inter staff to start his own coaching career in 2009.

    Really? For someone that has declared that he wants to manage in england for his next job,mou has alot of opinions.If he cared so passionately for inter as a club how come he paid such little attention to our youth academy(next gen cup finalists after beating marseille 2-0 in tonights semi,crestig n longo).Don’t get me wrong I love mou for guiding us to the CL cup but I recognise that he is in it for his own glory and it seems he passes comments to point to the illusion that he won the cup on his own.Our players need to realise that it was they and not the magnificent mourinho that rose to the summit of european football.Jose if you care so much for our plight well then please come and sign a ten year contract,if not would you please stop commenting on decisions made…..aren’t we unstable enough?

    Another more important question may be why chelsea and inter may need similar overhauls eh?

    I hear you brother. I love mourinho but he only did short term fix for inter. It was great to celebrate but anyone that knew inter knew this was coming the day moratti came out and said the team doesn’t need rebuilding that next transfer window after inter won the treble. It brings me back to what I’ve said before. Rebuilding didn’t have to be unloading half the team. If inter injected 1 or 2 players each window then inter wouldn’t end up with everyone playing on the feild over 30 years old. It’s good to have experience but eventually that isn’t enough to keep up with the younger teams.

      That is the worst thing about it really,one or two proven(not ricardo quaresma!)players would have kept our momentum going alright.Instead the gap between ourselves and juve and milan after calciopoli has reversed and now we must start from scratch….lets hope Bessa and the other youths develop an appetite for first team action soon.
