Before I wanted to underline that those who were truly special was the very Internazionale, pointing to the great relief that history has the club in football history, contrary to his former club. This, for many, was seen as an aside here to Abramovic's Chelsea, which may lead to understand that the London club unfairly devalued the 2 league titles Mourinho won there, when the securities fled the club for nearly 50 years . However, Massimo Moratti believes that Mourinho is very similar to Helenio Herrera, legendary coach of Inter Milan who won the only 2 European Champion Clubs' that the club owns and headmaster of the famous Italian Catenaccio tactics
