Turning on the sprinklers at the Nou Camp while Inter players were celebrating also showed the unwillingness of Barca to accept defeat and allow Inter their moment of glory.
However, by winning the Champions League, Jose Mourinho may feel that mission has been accomplished and his Italian adventure can therefore end. Could a return to the English Premiership be likely? or would La Liga and Real Madrid entice him more? The Premiership has definitely missed "The Special One" but I think Real Madrid and Mourinho is a marriage made in heaven - for next season.
