Inter Milan legend Mazzola: Benitez failed to adjust to Serie A

Inter Milan legend Sandro Mazzola says sacked coach Rafa Benitez failed to adjust to the Italian game during his seven months in charge.

Mazzola insists that the former Liverpool manager misjudged the game on the peninsula.

He said: "I think Benitez is a good Coach, but he didn't understand what world he had come to - a different one from English football.

"Had he said the things he did a couple of days later to the President then he would have been right, but it was wrong to make those statements publicly."
