Inter Milan deny Benitez approach reports
Tuesday 11 May 2010
Inter Milan have denied reports they have approached Rafael Benitez or any other coach as a possible replacement for Jose Mourinho.
Italy's media claimed today Inter had joined Juventus in the race to lure the Liverpool manager to the Serie A this summer.
Mourinho has yet to confirm if he will remain in charge of Inter next season, with the Portuguese tactician a reported target of Real Madrid.
A statement from Inter read: "With regards to what has been reported today by several Italian media, FC Internazionale underlines that absolutely no contact has been made with coaches - of other clubs or national teams - given that the club has a contract with Jose Mourinho until 2012, and that everybody is focused exclusively on the team's important upcoming commitments."
