Italians Get English Dates
Jose Mourinho is "delighted" after Inter drew Manchester United in the second round of the Champions League. The Portuguese is set to rally his troops against familiar faces once he faces Sir Alex Ferguson again.
Ferguson's last European battle with Mourinho was a memorable one as Manchester United got knocked out by eventual winners Porto in the 2003/04 season.
Luciano Spalletti hopes to sadden the English again as Roma will face Arsenal. Roma won their group that also featured Chelsea.
Meanwhile Claudio Ranieri wants to gain vengeance at the expense of Chelsea, his ex-employers. Ranieri was sacked by Chelsea after one season of Roman Abramovich's Chelsea takeover.
So the Italians get dates with the English, which is not a good idea according to Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis.
De Laurentiis commented that English women don't wash their special places in an attempt to keep the club's assets in place. No comment.
