Benitez, who endured a difficult six months at Inter two years ago, saw his team defeat the Nerazzurri 4-2.
“I have many friends at Inter. The facts speak for my history there and I have only joy in seeing my team win an important match.”
Benitez was also asked about those famous allegations he had photographs of Jose Mourinho removed from the Inter locker room when taking over in 2010.
“It is 100 per cent a lie.”
