Real’s Jose Mourinho critical of Inter’s Rafael Benitez for destroying legacy, hint return to EPL or Serie A (Part 1) 

The manager of Real Madrid Jose Mourinho has went on and blatantly attacked against the Spaniard Rafael Benitez who has now officially become the former manager of Inter Milan.

In a press release the Portuguese ‘Chosen One’ lambasted against the ex-Liverpool manager who came to manage the Nerazzurri at Inter this summer. He commented against Benitez stating he had quite literally destroyed the heritage he had helped build with the Italian outfit.

It was just last season that Nerazzurri were a force not to be reckoned with. They were ruthlessly obliterating everyone in their path as they went on to win a treble including the Serie A title and the Champions League.

However since Benitez’s arrival from the financially troubled Anfield, Lady Luck seemed to have put a curse on the manager as his woes of lack lustrous performances continue. With the Blue and Black part of San Siro, Rafa has faced severe injury problems which even at one point saw the team having 8 men from their staring line up on the bench.

Now reports have concluded that Benitez; who got an early sacking via email from the club is now off the records for Nerazzurri. Sources have confirmed that the agent of the former Champions League winner prior to the saga received an email suggesting the services of Benitez are no longer required with the club.

As Benitez was already making controversial statements against the club saying ‘back me or sack me’ to the chiefs, officials and board members, this decision won’t come as a surprise to many.

Reports have concluded that the former AC Milan manager Leonardo has stepped up to take the job after being hailed as the hot favourite. Rumours were rife long before the sacking his predecessor Rafa; that Leonardo will steal the show away from him. Expectedly the sacking took place before the New Year and the appointment has also been officialised in early parts of the winter transfer window.

Mourinho has solely blamed Benitez as the culprit behind the demise of Inter’s glory. He was caught saying it was Rafa who led the club down this terrible track and he would care if he got the marching orders.

While talking to media the manager stated, “I don't want to know when or if Benitez is ousted.” This was uttered when the manager heard about the first bit of news in media which rose speculation of Rafa’s departure.

He was proud of the time he spent with the Italian outfit when he spoke, “I am only interested in Inter, the president, my friends, the players, the fans who in two years gave me everything.”

Many accounts and examples have been given on the Portuguese legend when he was committed to the Blue and Black. It is widely accepted that Mourinho is a manager who not just befriends his companions and players but cares for them.
