MILAN - Rafael Benitez is glad to be
working with someone who knows their football in Inter Milan
president Massimo Moratti after the coach said he spent his last
year at Liverpool with directors who knew nothing about it.
The Spaniard joined the European and Italian champions in
the close season having left Liverpool after six years in charge
of the Premier League club.
"The last year at Liverpool I had directors who knew nothing
about football and you couldn't talk about football with
them," he told a news conference on Tuesday without specifying
who he meant by "directors".
"My relationship with president Moratti is good, he is a man
who knows his football."
His relationship with Liverpool's American owners Tom Hicks
and George Gillett, who put the indebted club up for sale in
April, was strained at times but Benitez had previously stayed
silent about his Anfield exit.
Benitez, whose new side are joint top and host Bari on
Wednesday in their fourth Serie A outing of the season, took
over from Real Madrid-bound Jose Mourinho after Inter sealed an
unprecedented Italian treble last term.
