Davide Ballardini has given Jose Mourinho a lecture on “humility” after Lazio’s Italian Super Cup triumph.

The Biancocelesti were the underdogs in Beijing on Saturday, but emerged 2-1 winners against Inter thanks to Francelino Matuzalem and Tommaso Rocchi.

Mourinho complained after the final whistle that his team deserved to win and had at least a dozen chances.

“That’s not true,” replied Ballardini. “Inter only scored from a mistaken back pass from our defenders, had a couple of good chances, but I consider it a balanced encounter.

“If we analyse the game in terms of possession, then Inter had something more, but if we look at the humility and hunger for the result, then Lazio deserved the victory.”

The Biancocelesti returned to Rome late last night and were greeted at the airport by 3,000 celebrating fans.

This was Ballardini’s first ever piece of silverware and he had a special dedication to make.

“I want to thank Delio Rossi. If Lazio were in Beijing at all to compete for this trophy against Inter, it is thanks to him and his hard work.”

Rossi parted company with Lazio this summer despite winning the Coppa Italia.[http://www.football-italia.net]
