Barcelona: Inter coach Jose Mourinho has insisted that selling Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Barcelona was "good business" on the part of his club and says that all parties to the deal are happy with the outcome.

"We lost a great player but got another and have built a top team, with a big future and different characteristics. Selling Ibra [Zlatan Ibrahimovic] was ideal business and all are happy, Ibra, [Pep] Guardiola, me and [Samuel] Eto`o," he said.

The Portuguese coach also said he wishes the Swedish striker luck during his time at Barcelona and hopes he wins trophies but doesn`t want him to fare well tonight.

"I wish good things for Ibra.I hope he scores many goals and wins many titles but I cannot wish anything positive for the game. It is the same for Barca fans and Eto`o," he added.

Mourinho added that the game against Barcelona is just another game that he will be seeking to win but admits that Barca are more of a team than his side.

"I feel responsible for Inter making a good impression. Barca is a team that has played a long time together, with a couple of additions. We have five new players and are a team under construction. This is the reality. Tomorrow is just another game that we try to win," he added.
