Inter president Massimo Moratti is already comparing Jose Mourinho to Inter legend Helenio Herrera, who ruled supreme in the 1960s and brought iron fisted discipline, motivational techniques, and his version ofcatenaccio to the Italian game.
Herrera also gave us the first personality driven coach. He was the original Mourinho. He insisted on taking credit for team success. During his coaching years the team was referred to as Herrera’s Inter and not Facchetti’s Inter. A reversal from the player centric fixation of clubs in those days.
Similarities that are well warranted but could also be premature. Mourinho might already be casting his eye towards Real. Which if it happens, should make those Clasicos extra special.
