Former Inter Milan coach Gigi Simoni believes Rafa Benitez would be doing a better job at this time than Leonardo.

Leonardo replaced the former Liverpool manager at Christmas.

"It may seem paradoxical, but in case Leonardo is not confirmed on the Inter bench, I would recall Benitez," said Simoni.

"I don't think he should've been sent away in the first place. Benitez is a talented Coach who was forced to work in impossible conditions."
