Cup win satisfies Mourinho

Internazionale coach Jose Mourinho praised the response of his players to defeat last weekend as they booked their place in the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia at the expense of AS Roma. Mourinho was critical of Inter's performance in Sunday's 3-1 defeat at Atalanta, but admitted he was heartened by their display in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Roman side. Goals from Adriano and Zlatan Ibrahimovic booked Inter's place in the last four of the competition. "This victory is a very good reaction to the defeat we suffered on Sunday in Bergamo," admitted Mourinho. "When we play in that fashion, everything is better - both on and off the field. "For this reason I am happy and so are the players as we don't like to lose."
