Comments on: A special mission for Mourinho – saving Serie A http://blogs.reuters.com/soccer/2008/07/07/a-special-mission-for-mourinho-saving-serie-a/ World Soccer views and news Wed, 16 Nov 2016 16:27:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Paul Stephen Murray http://blogs.reuters.com/soccer/2008/07/07/a-special-mission-for-mourinho-saving-serie-a/comment-page-1/#comment-339764 Wed, 09 Jul 2008 10:11:04 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/soccer/2008/07/07/a-special-mission-for-mourinho-saving-serie-a/#comment-339764 I am a new supporter of Inter Milan after holidaying in Italy and seeing Inter playing. Serie A is a far supperior league to the English premiership which is now dominated by the so called big four whome themselves are far less entertaining when they play each other. The flair of Italien Football makes each game from top to bottom a pleasure to watch and Jose can only bring more of that not just to the Inter but to Serie A itself, and he will certailnly bring the european cup back to Italy.

Prandelli, Spaletti, Mazzarri and even Marino are the real best managers in the world. Now Jose has joined the mix and its gonna be fantastic, he was my favorite manager when he was at chelsea and now hes joined our league so its fantastic. I think Inter will focus on the CL this year and may let the campionato slip to Roma or Juve.

I also think unless Milan sign someone quick, they will miss out on 4th place again. To me Adebayor is over rated. Drogba would be good even with his attitude, but I think Sheva would be my sentimental choice. Secondly they need another AM to play alongside Ricky Kaka. I do like R10 and I think he can get back to his best and I certainly wouldn’t be upset if they get him, but for me the best option for that position is without a doubt Thiago Neves from Fluminense. I hope that he signs with any Serie A team during this summer I dont care who.

As far as saying the EPL has the best players, well thats subjective. They have many top class players, but so does La Liga and Serie A. I think the difference is the squad players and the homegrown talent, and thats why I believe that as far as how competitive each league is, I would say Serie A and La Liga are most competitive. Teams like Villareal and Fiorentina seriously have a legitimate chance at winning the title but in England its the same 4 teams for the last 7-8 years finishing in the top 4. I don’t know about Herrara because that was way before my time but I think if Mourinho can win the CL for Inter within 3 years then he will become legend at the club

But it has also seen better days. I don’t like the style of the Premiership but they are buying the best players and managers at present.

On another point, Mourinho airing his views on hooliganism reminds me only that we are definitely in the dog days of football here – he’s not really interested in this issue.

I know it’s summer here guys but let’s discuss this – is it possible that given the support and good fortune (one of the key aspects of success in football) – Jose Mourinho could become the next Helenio Herrera of Inter?

He has the brains. He has the balls. He has the ambition. He has the personality. He knows only how to win.

What do you think of Mourinho possibly outdoing Herrera?

It doesnt have the TV deals like Spain and England but the drama and passion of the fans is really only matched by the brazilian Serie A and the Argentine Clausura.
