josé mourinho was in ebullient mood as the defeat of his former club chelsea fc took fc internazionale milano into the quarter-finals in impressive fashion.
josé mourinho said he is "the happiest person on earth" after guiding fc internazionale milano into the uefa champions league quarter-finals at the expense of his former club, chelsea fc. although the inter coach believed the visitors were "the best team by far" throughout the 1-0 win at stamford bridge - secured by samuel eto'o's 78th-minute goal - mourinho urged caution by stressing that the "road to madrid is still long". counterpart carlo ancelotti admitted the nerazzurri were deserved winners because of the way they pressurised his players into mistakes.
josé mourinho, inter coach we were the best team, the best team by far. chelsea are a great team. we came here knowing the way they play very well. we controlled the game; every player performed at a high standard. to win here it must be almost a perfect performance, not just from the team but from every player. i learned we can beat anyone because chelsea are not just 'anyone', they are one of the best. we can win [at] anyone left in the champions league; we can do it.
i'm very happy with how my team accepted the risk i took because sometimes a coach takes a risk and the team doesn't answer to it. from the first minute we were the best team on the pitch against, i repeat, a great team. i was bit scared we missed so many chances because normally in these type of matches you don't get so many. i celebrated a lot in the dressing room because it's a big victory for us. i love chelsea, this stadium and these people but i am a professional and who knows i could come back here in the future as the manager of an english club. samuel eto'o scored against chelsea in the only game i lost at stamford bridge. tonight he did it again and this is one of the victories that make me happier. i am the happiest person on earth, but the road to madrid is still long.
samuel eto'o, inter striker
chelsea didn't expect us to start with three strikers. they expected a conservative team but josé wanted us to score that goal. my goal at the end is a relief because i've struggled since coming back from the african cup of nations. it is also a reward for team work.
carlo ancelotti, chelsea manager
we didn't play how we wanted to. inter put pressure on our midfielders so we had a lot of difficulty playing. inter played very well with a strong defence and were good on the counterattack but we didn't play how we wanted. we didn't give a good performance because inter put very strong pressure on us. usually we play in a different way. we played better in the first game in milan but we were not able to repeat the same display so inter deserved to win. congratulations to them.

chelsea fc 0-1 fc internazionale milano (agg: 1-3)
josé mourinho enjoyed a happy return to stamford bridge as samuel eto'o's late goal confirmed the visitors' place in the last eight.
by trevor haylett from stamford bridge
josé mourinho's statement that stamford bridge is a happy hunting ground for him was proved right as fc internazionale milano celebrated a notable success over his former club and a place in the uefa champions league quarter-finals for the first time in four years.
samuel eto'o's late goal increased the italian titleholders' first-leg advantage and inflict chelsea fc's first home defeat in the competition since february 2006, ending their run of 21 unbeaten games. eto'o had also scored the winner on that occasion, a 2-1 win for fc barcelona, when mourinho was in the home dugout.
to cap a miserable night for the english side, didier drogba was ordered off three minutes from time after tangling with thiago motta, leaving mourinho's current club as deserved winners having missed a number of decent second-half opportunities.
inter's coach was afforded a generous reception by the home crowd who chanted his name before the start. then it was down to business and the uncompromising nature of the contest was quickly apparent with a number of shuddering tackles.
mourinho was clearly anxious about chelsea's left-sided threat, with yuri zhirkov eager to push forward in the slipstream of the in-form florent malouda, and deployed eto'o in what was virtually a right midfield role. the first opening came from that flank, maicon advancing but his rising shot was no threat to chelsea's third-choice goalkeeper ross turnbull.
the flow was being interrupted by a succession of free-kicks, diego milito only centimetres away from connecting with wesley sneijder's curling delivery from one such set piece. michael ballack had earlier gone close for chelsea, capitalising on milito's loose ball only to drag his shot beyond the upright.
that proved a rare lapse in the inter defence, maicon epitomising their commitment when he threw himself in front of drogba to make a vital block. inter responded and when john terry misjudged maicon's cross, eto'o was not quite alert enough and failed to keep his header on target. the half ended with lucio and co under sustained pressure, and from drogba's astute pass nicolas anelka had a golden chance to break the deadlock. júlio césar half-blocked his shot and motta was on hand to tidy up.
a flurry of bookings launched the second half, motta and walter samuel both picking up cautions that rule them out of the quarter-final first leg. the first chance after the break fell to eto'o following sneijder's glorious crossfield pass, but the cameroonian international delayed his shot and the danger passed.
malouda was becoming increasingly influential and a rasping drive required quick reactions from júlio césar, who turned it aside down by his near post. that near miss preceded one at the other end, sneijder combining skilfully with goran pandev yet again the striker failed to pull the trigger in time, allowing zhirkov to intervene.
milito passed up two more openings and motta headed over when well-placed. would inter regret those misses? the answer came in the 78th minute when the previously quiet eto'o showed his class in getting the wrong side of branislav ivanović to fasten onto sneijder's pass before dispatching his shot inside turnbull's right-hand post and take inter into the quarter-finals for the first time since 2005/06.
