Inter Coach Rafael Benitez Sacked By Email; Leonardo In Pole For Job – Report
Former Milan coach Leonardo is edging closer to Inter job as club note informs Benitez he’s no longer needed…
Benitez seems likely to leave the champions as his relations at club level have caused a cocktail of concern among the chiefs, despite Massimo Moratti claiming there was no drastic action in place on Tuesday night.
La Gazzetta dello Sport claims Inter have sacked Benitez by email after the club’s lawyer sent him a note making it clear he was no longer required.
That leaves former Milan man Leonardo as favourite to come in and take the reins on a two-year deal.
Luciano Spalletti has also been linked with the job, but the Russian club already said their coach was staying.
However, there is another candidate. Goal.com Arabic edition sources claim Al Naser coach Walter Zenga is about to leave the Saudi club and head to Milan.? (Goal.com)
Sacking someone by email is both insensitive and potentially problematic. What if Rafa pretends he never received the email? What is after being sacked by email he turns up before the next training session only to find someone else in his spot? Well clearly that is unlikely in a high profile position such as boss of Inter Milan but clearly it is not nice to axe the Spaniard in this manner.
However a sacking was on the cards. It takes some ability to take a side that has won the Serie A title five years on the trot and then take them to seventh spot, some 13 points from leaders and arch rivals AC Milan. It didn’t help that the former Liverpool boss then stated that he needed more money to invest in his squad stating that he could not win anything without improving what he inherited from Jose Mourinho, which is of course insane given that the same team won the treble last term.
Yes the side has had some bad injury problems but that is not a good enough reason for the shocking start to the season the Milan club has suffered and the axe, albeit maybe not by email, was necessary.
