'We can be proud' The Italian view

'[Mourinho] cast off the shadow of crisis and controversy, cast off the curse of Europe, [and] won the tactical battle with Carlo Ancelotti.' Tuttosport

“The true victor is Mourinho. He bravely chose an Inter of three attackers, plus the delightful and formidable Sneijder. Inter were impeccable. Chelsea were without rhythm and without depth. A victory for all Italian football. Not just because of this blessed European ranking which is becoming a nightmare, but because finally one of ours has stopped the rot.”

Corriere dello Sport

“Eto’o Saves Italy; Il Mister leaves Stamford Bridge with head held high. About time, finally one can be a proud Italian after a football match.”

La Repubblica

“The Perfect Night; Mou’s tactical masterpiece. The play of Sneijder, Motta and Pandev restored that image we once had of English teams: people who like to run. Technical skill is our department.”

Gazzetta dello Sport

“Mourinho v Ancelotti, the game within the game, was settled comfortably in favour of the Portuguese.”
