Inter coach blows his top

Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho reckons Barcelona will accuse him of causing Icelandic volcano eruption which disrupted their travel plans ahead of their Champions League semi-final clash. The ex-Chelsea manager was responding to a post-match tunnel bust-up with Barca midfielder Xavi.

Barcelona were unhappy with Mourinho’s instructions not to water the San Siro pitch before the match and that the game was overseen by a Portuguese referee.

Mourinho clearly interpreted the comments as sour grapes and took the opportunity to take a bit of a dig when asked whether Barca’s long coach trip had affected their performance.

Mourinho said: “The way they are, tomorrow we will probably read I am to blame for the volcano.”

Although the Special One is probably not quite that special, he does move in those circles.

He added: “Maybe I have a friend in the volcano and I am responsible for that.”

    Barca are some really sore losers as of late, it seems… It’s a shame, but anything that takes some of the sheen off is good for this Madrid fan.
