The two teams meet tonight in the Coppa Italia.
"I remember winning the two trophies [Supercoppa and Intercontinental Cup] there, and making many friends," said Benitez.
"I've said many times what happened, and now I want to look forward. I won two trophies there, and have good relationships with many people, and I retain that memory.
"There are some people I don't have fond memories of, but that happens when you want to win and someone won't allow it.
"It's a very strong club, and a big one internationally, with fans who want to win everything.
"On a technical and level and in the sense of prestige they're struggling to reach their goals, and that means this match will be more difficult against them, because they want to win something."
