Inter coach Benítez denies Milito rant

SoccerNews in Serie A 21 Sep 2010


(GSM) – Internazionale boss Rafael Benítez has brushed off suggestions he has problems with striker Diego Milito.

Milito is enduring a difficult time at the San Siro as he finds it hard to recover his excellent form of last season.

The striker’s agent Fernando Hidalgo criticised Rafael Bení­tez earlier this week by stating that Milito’s doesn’t feel the trust from the Spanish manager.

Benítez revealed his concerns over Hidalgo’s comments on a press conference ahead of Inter’s match against Bari.

“I have spoken to Milito. He is well and is working good. He worked well today also,” the former Liverpool coach told the press.

“Diego knows it’s just a matter of time. His agent’s comments? Milito told me he was surprised by the comments because he has not spoken to his agent for a month.

“I have learned one thing though. We are getting close to games against Roma and Juventus, and all these things are emerging…

“Will they have a negative impact? I like working on the pitch, staying focused. The most important thing is that my players work well. What people say on the outside is not important.”

Benítez also talked about the debate generated by Palermo president Mauro Zamparini, who referred to the calciopoli scandal after Palermo’s match against Inter.

“Coming from the Premier League I can say that presidents there do not speak as much as they do here,” said Benitez.

“Also, we had 17 shots on goal against Palermo… I have respect for everyone in football, and so I will not add more. I am a coach that speaks about football,” he said.?
