Cambridge, who sit just inside the play-off places in the Blue Sq Premier, will be hoping for maximum points when they travel to Wrexham this Thursday.

Inter president Massimo Moratti has given his support to coach Jose Mourinho despite the club’s disappointing start to 2009.

Inter president Massimo Moratti has given his support to coach Jose Mourinho despite the club’s disappointing start to 2009.

A 1-1 draw against Cagliari and last weekend’s 3-1 defeat at Atalanta cut Inter’s lead over Scudetto contenders Juventus to three points at the halfway point of the season.

But with the Nerazzurri unbeaten at the San Siro and having only suffered two defeats in 19 games, Moratti has called Mourinho’s spell in charge “extremely positive”.

Moratti told the club’s official website: “The first six months leading the Serie A standings is a very difficult thing for any coach.

“Therefore, it is absolutely positive. Three points more or less doesn’t really mean much at this stage of the campaign.”

Mourinho is equally pleased. The Nerazzurri are through to the Champions League last 16, where they will take on Manchester United, and also still in the Coppa Italia.

“I am very proud,” Mourinho said. “Not many coaches can say the same thing.”
