Milan defender Paolo Maldini has responded angrily to Inter boss Jose Mourinho’s claims that the Rossoneri win will nothing this season.
“It doesn’t matter that Milan have so many players with a winning mentality, this season they will finish with no trophies,” Mourinho said after the Coppa Italia clash with Sampdoria.
“And Juventus only find themselves in such a good position due to refereeing errors.”
Maldini, who will retire at the end of the season, replied: “I don’t want to trade insults with Mourinho, but he really can’t make these claims until he wins something for Inter himself.
“As far as I know, he is discussing something which he has a chance of winning, but which I have already won five times.”
The 40-year-old defender’s team were eliminated from the UEFA Cup by Werder Bremen and the club are 12 points behind Mourinho’s men in the Serie A table.
