Inter Milan boss to face hearing over alleged altercation with journalist

Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho is to face a disciplinary hearing over an alleged altercation with a journalist. The Portuguese coach has been charged with insulting Corriere dello Sport journalist Andrea Ramazzotti and "gripping his forearms" following the 1-1 Serie A draw with Atalanta last month. The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) have confirmed the hearing, while Inter have also been charged over their employee's alleged behaviour. Mourinho, whose side are eight points clear at the top of the table, has previously admitted verbally insulting the journalist but denied that there was physical contact. The 46-year-old, who has frequently lamented the grilling he gets from Italian media, said he snapped because the journalist had been standing by the team bus for months despite his protests. He refused to make a public apology, saying he would speak to the reporter in private.
