Inter Milan president Moratti: Benitez very different to Mourinho

Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has welcomed the appointment of new coach Rafa Benitez.

Moratti has explained to fans why he went for the former Liverpool manager.

He told Inter's website: "Rafa will be unveiled on Tuesday and we will begin to speak about the market on Tuesday.

"We chose him because we thought that he could guarantee us the future. I hope that this happens. Rafa is very serious, a great worker and that is the principal thing.

"From a human point of view, he seems to be a rich person, who has different characteristics from Mourinho, but this is also important because I said that I didn't want a Mourinho impersonator.

"I wanted someone who has their own characteristics, their own personality and Rafa has just that."
