Mourinho tried to take Lampard to Inter

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that he tried to sign Lampard in 2008 during his first season at Inter Milan before the midfielder signed a contract extension.

It was between the club and him before I arrived.

I tried to take Lampard to Inter. I was trying but at the same time I was saying you belong to Chelsea.

I was not just pulling straight away. I was 'if you want to come, I want you'.

In the end he did what he wanted to do and what I wanted him to do, which was sign a new contract with Chelsea."

The Lega Calcio has fined Inter Milan 15,000 euros and ordered them to close a section of San Siro for their next Serie A home game after their fans were found to have racially abused two Juventus players at the weekend.

Juve's Paul Pogba and Kwadwo Asamoah were reportedly the targets of chants which emanated from the second tier of the 'curva nord' in Saturday's 1-1 draw.

The disciplinary arm of the Lega Calcio also took into consideration Inter fans directing a laser beam towards the referee and Juve players as well as an insulting banner against Bianconeri boss Antonio Conte when delivering their verdict.

It means one end of Inter's home ground will be without spectators when they host Fiorentina on September 26.
