Alberto Zaccheroni says Rafa Benitez was the right coach for Inter Milan.

The Japan boss believes it was just bad timing for the ex-Liverpool manager.

Zacc said: "Benitez is in fact a Coach who has always been inspired by the Italian football tradition.

"He was the right man at the wrong time for Inter, both because of the numerous injuries that occurred during his tenure and following on from Jose Mourinho, who did extraordinary things."
