Inter Milan legend Materazzi slams Benitez

Inter Milan legend Marco Materazzi has taken aim at former coach Rafa Benitez. Materazzi was discussing the coaches he'd play for with the Nerazzurri.

He said: "Jose Mourinho is the Number One. He makes sure players feel completely involved in the project. In Madrid, after the Champions League Final, he told me that he was leaving and the bench went to Benitez.

"I never got on with Rafa. He even made me remove from my locker the photographs of my happiest moments with Mourinho and Marcello Lippi.

"He thought that he knew everything, but instead he was afraid of his own shadow."
