Italian football agent Dario Canovi has responded to criticisms aimed at Inter by new Roma manager Jose Mourinho.

Speaking to Italian news outlet Tuttomercatoweb Radio, as reported by FCInter1908, the agent suggested that criticisms from the Portuguese of the way the Nerazzurri have been run are unfair.

Mourinho, who managed the Nerazzurri for two successful seasons between 2008 and 2010 culminating in an historic treble win, has been officially unveiled as Roma manager, giving his first press conference while in charge of the Giallorossi today.

During the press conference, the 58-year-old compared the situation at his new club to that at Inter, with the Giallorossi more focused on stability and sustainability, which he contrasts to the Nerazzurri, which he characterized as having overspent in pursuit of the title and now facing financial problems.

Canovi believes that Inter’s problems are more complex than Mourinho makes them out to be, and that there are factors to consider which are outside of football.

As he explains:

“I did not like hearing that, it is unfair. Inter had problems due to Chinese government decisions, and not with how the club has been run. It was not very classy from someone who left after the Treble.”
