Inter dumped Roma out of cup as Mourinho receives hero's welcome

Mourinho coached in front of an Inter home crowd for the first time since leaving in 2010 but Roma limply exited the competition thanks to a goal almost straight from kick-off by Edin Dzeko and Alexis Sanchez's second-half piledriver. The win was the perfect response to losing the Milan derby on Saturday, the tempestuous aftermath of which has led to coach Simone Inzaghi being suspended for the weekend's huge clash at fellow Serie A title chasers Napoli.

The Portuguese is a footballing deity for Inter fans thanks to two magical seasons on the Nerazzurri bench which culminated with the treble triumph of Serie A, the Italian Cup and most importantly the Champions League. He beat Roma to the league title and Cup in a battle of former Chelsea managers with Claudio Ranieri, only beating his Blues predecessor to the championship on the final day of the 2009-10 season.
