mourinho on the enigma of balotelli cnn international 4 ekim 2012
spiker: "bugüne kadar sahip olduğunuz en sorunu futbolcu kimdi?"
josé mourinho: "en problemli... aslında onlar eğlenceli."
spiker: "bir örnek verebilir misiniz?"
josé mourinho: "mario (balotelli). mario inanılmaz eğlencelidir. interde yaşadığım 2 yıl için size mario ile ilgili 200 sayfalık bir kitap yazabilirim. ve bu kitapın türü drama olmaz. komedi olur. aklıma kazan'daki şampiyonlar ligi maçı geliyor. maç öncesi birçok önemli futbolcum sakattı. milito yok, etoo yok. maçta mario ile sıkıntı yaşıyorum. sanırım 43-44. dakikalarda sarı kart gördü. devre arasında soyunma odasına gittik. 15 dakika sadece mario ile konuştum. 'mario değişiklik şansım yok. yedek kulübesinde forvet oyuncum yok. kimseye dokunma. sadece topla oyna. topu kaybettiğinde reaksiyon gösterme. eğer biri seni provoke etmek isterse herhangi bir reaksiyon gösterme. eğer biri sana hata yaparsa herhangi bir reaksiyon gösterme mario lütfen' dedim. 46. dakikada... kırmızı kart!"

ten-man inter resist rubin onslaught published: tuesday 29 september 2009, 22.24cet
fc rubin kazan 1-1 fc internazionale milano
dejan stanković cancelled out alejandro domínguez's early goal and inter held on after playing the last 30 minutes with ten men.
by eugene ravdin from centralniy stadium
fc internazionale milano had to hang on with ten men in the last half-hour to come away from fc rubin kazan with a group f point.
goal apiece kazan was staging its first uefa champions league fixture and within eleven minutes alejandro domínguez had struck in his tenth consecutive rubin game. dejan stanković equalised as inter responded well but after mario balotelli's dismissal they were forced to cling on to secure a second point, one more than rubin.
rubin ahead any thoughts the home team might sit back against such celebrated visitors were dispelled in the opening minute when the home side surged forward and earned a dangerous free-kick. the set-piece did not bear fruit but rubin's intent was clear and the early pressure eventually told as aleksandr bukharov latched on to a through-pass and laid off to the on-rushing domínguez. the argentinian forward strode past lucio and walter samuel before hammering an angled shot into the roof of júlio césar's net for his second goal in as many group games.
eto'o denied the brazilian custodian made amends three minutes later, tipping the ball over the bar after domínguez tested him from a free-kick. after lucio volleyed just wide at the other end, júlio césar was grateful to see rubin defender césar navas head over after being found unmarked at the far post by domínguez. inter then began to settle and sergei ryzhikov produced an incredible save after 21 minutes to stop samuel eto'o from point-blank range.
equaliser after a last-gasp interception denied mancini, starting in place of the injured diego milito, it was clear rubin were becoming stretched. but having paid for sitting back on a lead only to lose 3-1 at fc dynamo kyiv on matchday 1, the home team kept pressing only to see their lead disappeared on 27 minutes when the unmarked stanković headed in maicon's cross. ryzhikov had to tip balotelli's cross-shot on to the bar as inter continued to attack.
home side respond after the break inter continued where they had left off, pegging rubin back, but the russian champions defended staunchly and soon the visitors began to drop back while the home side, urged on by a noisy crowd, gained in confidence. after sergei semak went close from 20 metres out, rubin won a succession of corners but were unable to make them count.
balotelli off inter were reduced to ten men on the hour when balotelli was dismissed for a second booking after a foul on christian noboa. soon júlio césar had to stretch himself to palm away noboa's curling shot from distance before bukharov miscued when put in perfect position by gökdeniz karadeniz's strong run into the box.
semak hits post the rubin fans increased the volume and their players piled on the pressure. but they could not force the winner; aleksandr ryazantsev failing to place his shot when in the box, bukharov heading just wide from gökdeniz's cross and semak hitting the post after a corner on 81 minutes. nevertheless, with this performance they will be a threat at fc barcelona on 20 october, when inter, who brought on patrick vieira late on, will hope for a first group win at home to dynamo.
