Mourinho thumbs-up for inter aces

INTER MILAN coach Jose Mourinho has given a thumbs-up to the job done by his players so far this season.

The four-time defending champions are cruising on top of Serie A and Wednesday's 1-0 win at Chievo saw Inter maintain an eight-point cushion over scudetto contenders AC Milan at the halfway point of the campaign.

With the Nerazzurri unbeaten at the San Siro and having suffered only two defeats in 18 games, Mourinho has reason to be happy.

"I am extremely satisfied," he said. "My team is showing a lot of character and this is something that can only make a coach happy.

"I can talk about tactics and individual performances, but at the end of the day, what makes the difference in games is the character displayed by the team.

"I have a lot of top professionals on the pitch and they do a great job."

If results go their way, Inter's lead could increase to 10 points this weekend. The Nerazzurri host rock-bottom Siena tomorrow, while Juventus take on AC Milan on Sunday.
