Goal less draw Manu Vs Intermilan

Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho has slammed referee Luis Medina Cantalejo after Tuesday’s 0-0 draw with Man United.

At a packed to capacity San Siro, the Serie A table-toppers were often made to play second fiddle to a United team who are attempting to retain the trophy they won last May in Moscow.

With the second leg to come at Old Trafford in a fortnight’s time, Mourinho has wasted little time in attacking Cantalejo, who the flamboyant Portuguese coach believes failed to referee the tie evenly.

“Maybe in the second leg we will have a referee who is on our side.

“I don’t want to go into details of things like how we didn’t have a penalty. Everything was against us, every little detail.

“You watch how many free-kicks they had and we had. The way we got yellow cards and they did not. I think the tendency was clear.

Despite a succession of clear chances, including one in the last seconds that Cristiano Ronaldo cannoned into Julio Cesar’s chest, a vital away goal for United would not come.

Whilst admitting that he was disappointed with the draw, Ferguson was quick to rubbish Mourinho’s suggestion that the match officials had been biased towards the visitors.

Is he serious? I saw a marvelous refereeing performance,” declared the wily Scot.

“Of course, there’s a disappointment that we have not won the game, but with our record at Old Trafford we should have a great chance.

“I just hope it (the draw) foes not come back to bite us,” Ferguson added
