If Jose Mourinho Had Stayed, We’d Have Kept Winning - Materazzi Reflects on Mourinho's Departure

Marco Materazzi, former Inter Milan defender, believes that the club could have achieved more under Jose Mourinho’s leadership had he stayed longer.

In an interview with The Times, Materazzi reminisced about Mourinho’s impactful tenure and the missed opportunities following his departure.

During Mourinho’s brief stint at Inter, the team achieved a historic Treble, winning the Serie A title, the Coppa Italia, and the Champions League in the 2009-2010 season.

Materazzi fondly recalled the camaraderie among teammates during that triumphant period, highlighting Mourinho’s role as the catalyst for their success.

Expressing his admiration for Mourinho, Materazzi described him as the best coach he had ever worked with, despite initially feeling sidelined by the coach’s arrival.

Reflecting on the Champions League victory against Bayern Munich, Materazzi revealed the emotional aftermath, expressing his desire for Mourinho to stay and lead the team to further triumphs.

However, Mourinho’s departure to Real Madrid dashed those hopes, leaving Materazzi and the team grappling with what could have been.

In addition to discussing Mourinho’s impact, Materazzi revisited the infamous incident involving Zinedine Zidane’s headbutt during the 2006 World Cup final. He lamented the tarnishing of his career by the incident, emphasizing its regrettable nature.

Despite the setbacks, Materazzi’s reflections underscore the enduring legacy of Mourinho’s tenure at Inter Milan and the lingering sense of what might have been if he had remained at the helm.
