Serie A outfit insist manager is innocent

Inter Milan have denied allegations that manager Jose Mourinho assaulted a fan after Wednesday's defeat to Manchester United in the UEFA Champions League. It has been alleged that the former Chelsea chief clashed with a supporter near the Inter team bus as he left Old Trafford after Inter's 2-0 elimination at the last 16 stage. Greater Manchester Police have contacted United to request CCTV footage of the area and have confirmed a complaint has been made. However, Inter insist that Mourinho, who took over at the Giuseppe Meazza in the summer, is innocent. A statement from the Italian club read: "At the end of the game, the Portuguese tactician gave interviews to the European media, signed autographs, watched the penalties of the Roma versus Arsenal game before saluting (Sir Alex) Ferguson in his office. "After giving the last interview to Inter Channel, he entered the team bus that was parked outside the dressing rooms and hence it was a very calm post-game experience." Nemanja Vidic headed United an early lead in Wednesday night's second leg, with Cristiano Ronaldo completing the scoring from Wayne Rooney's cross at the start of the second half.
