Jose Is the King of Europe Again; Mourinho Lifts Champions League for the Second Time as Milito Double Seals It for Inter


Byline: From Rob Draper AT The BeRNABeU, MADRID

BAYERN MUNICH 0

INTER MILAN 2

Milito (34, 70)

SO THE apprentice has truly surpassed his master and Jose Mourinho once again reigns supreme over Europe.

Louis van Gaal, who once saved a young Mourinho's career at Barcelona and nurtured his early coaching potential, fell victim to the monster he helped to create as the Inter Milan manager last night sealed his place among the greats with his second victory in the Champions League final.

Only Ernst Happel and Ottmar Hitzfeld had managed such an achievement with different sides before Mourinho joined that exclusive club, adding to his success with Porto in 2004.

And just like that triumph six years ago, Mourinho disappeared into the crowd as his players celebrated, ready to take up his new role as the boss of Real Madrid where he recorded this latest achievement.

He said: 'If you are a good coach or a good player and you do not go to Real Madrid, you have always a little space in your career.

'I want to win the Champions League with a third club. My next house will be the Santiago Bernabeu.

'I don't want to speak to the players in case they make me change my mind.' Yet it was Bayern's former Chelsea winger Arjen Robben who was the centre of attention early on, not least from Walter Samuel, who brought him crashing to the ground within three minutes but the offender escaped a booking.

However, Robben was often too fast to be kicked as Cristian Chivu endured a wretched first half chasing the former Chelsea winger.

The Dutchman danced past both Chivu and Samuel after 10 minutes to cross for Ivica Olic, who pulled his shot just wide. Inter then escaped on 17 minutes when Daniel van Buyten rose to head Robben's cross and Maicon clearly handled. Referee Howard Webb appeared not to notice.

Mourinho's men were prepared to concede possession and wait for their chance, which in the main came from Wesley Sneijder's free-kicks from long range early on, which Hans-Jorg Butt was able to punch away.

But, for all Bayern's attacking endeavour, their defence remains a fault line waiting to be exposed, and so it proved on 34 minutes when Inter scored via route one.

Keeper Julio Cesar's kick was flicked on by Diego Milito, with Martin Demichelis allowing himself to be outjumped by a man three inches shorter. Sneijder darted forward and returned the ball to the eager Milito, and as Holger Badstuber rushed across, Milito maintained his composure and feinted before firing home. …
