Inter Milan president Moratti: I would have sacked Benitez ten years ago

Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti admits he would have sacked Rafa Benitez ten years ago. Benitez's Inter appeared to get their campaign back on track with Sunday's 5-2 victory over Parma.

"He's not a sergeant of iron as it was like with Mou (Jose Mourinho)? Rafa is certainly not a lightweight," declared Moratti.

"Maybe 10 years ago I would have sacked him in such a situation, but experience helps.

"But is there a breaking point? Yes, but he is here not because I am patient, but because I admire very much Benitez."
