Motta pleads with Inter boss Mourinho to end Deco's hell at Chelsea

Inter Milan midfielder Thiago Motta believes Chelsea star Deco would be animportant signing for the Serie A winners.
Deco has fallen out of favour at Stamford Bridge and Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho is desperate to offer him a lifeline in Italy.
Motta, who moved to Inter this summer from Genoa, believes his former Barcelona team-mate would be a great addition to Inter.
'When I played with him (Deco) at Barcelona, you had the best Ronaldinho while Lionel Messi was beginning to shine, but the reference point for everyone was Deco,' said Motta.
'He is the most complete midfielder there is. He would be a fantastic reinforcement.'
Deco joined Chelsea last summer from Barcelona for £8million but after a promising start, the Portuguese midfielder failed to live up to the hype and was rarely used in the second half of the campaign.
