Evidently angered by the display he saw from his team, the 58-year-old took his frustrations out in the media as he sat down for his post-match conference. But Jose refused to answer a question from a journalist, instead hitting back with a fiery response.

"Your job is a lot easier than ours which is why we earn a lot more than you," he said in his post-match press conference.

Mourinho then refused to answer any more questions for the duration of the conference, and instead began to go on a lengthy rant, insisting that the game could have been different had Roma taken their chances earlier on.

Mourinho: Inter are better than Roma.

"Inter are better than us on a good day. Inter are objectively better than us. This became an extremely difficult match tonight because of absentees," he said.

"They finished 29 points above us last season. We had three big chances, two of which came at 0-0."

Mourinho joined Roma in the summer after he was sacked by Tottenham Hotspur back in April and has won 13 of his 23 games in charge.

Meanwhile, the Portuguese manager has been linked with a return to the Premier League.

According to The Sunday Mirror, Everton are interested in appointing Mourinho to replace under-fire coach Rafa Benitez.
