Barcelona get Jose Mourinho themed reception at Inter training ground

Following Barcelona's scoreless draw against Milan at the San Siro in Wednesday night, the Catalan club decided to stay in Italy a bit longer to avoid travel complications from the general strike in Spain.

Inter graciously allowed them to train at their facility and though there were many Barca fans there to greet them, there were chants and banners referencing former Inter manager Jose Mourinho. The man who knocked Barca out of the Champions League semifinal in 2010 before leading Inter to winning the tournament and subjecting himself to a never-ending series of rematches against Barcelona as manager of Real Madrid surely got a maniacal laugh out of it too.

And suddenly, his decision to publicly entertain the idea of returning to Inter just before Barcelona's visit makes even more sense.
