ROME – Interviewed by Sky, José Mourinho , ten years after the triplete, says:
“The results make history, I feel really special because I think what we have done goes further than the Cups, medals and history.
This is the thing that makes me feel very special. "
The Portuguese then points out that in that group there was a family air:
“There are unforgettable moments in our life and this is obviously one of them. The relationship I have with the players, Moratti and everyone we worked on there is an everyday relationship.
This is the most important thing: the 'Triplete', the Champions League, the dream of all the Inter players and mine, but what remains forever is this relationship. And that's a very special thing. "
One of the games that symbolize the victory of the Nerazzurri Triplete is certainly the one at Camp Nou against Barcelona, when Mourinho's team, after the 3-1 of the first leg, managed to snatch the pass for the Madrid final by losing 1-0.
The Special One remembers those moments and what he said to Guardiola after the expulsion of Thiago Motta: “I turn to the Barcelona bench and I see that everyone is celebrating, I went to Pep and I said to him 'Hey don't worry it's not over yet '. I knew our players would leave life on the pitch. It was the most beautiful defeat of my life. "
“When we arrived in Madrid everyone's feeling was that the cup was ours. I felt it too, I tried to get my players to get the correct message: we had a game to play, but God had decided it was ours. Even ten years later we are a family.
We are friends forever: this thing touches me deeply because I have been lucky enough to have beautiful results in other teams, but this feeling of family and friends for life is something that makes me feel too proud ". (Source: Sky Sport).
