Moratti praises Rafa's work

Inter President Massimo Moratti praised Rafa Benitez for the semi-final victory. “I was nervous, as you never know in football.”

The Nerazzurri beat Seongnam 3-0 to sweep through to the Club World Cup Final.

“Benitez did a great job in preparing the approach to the game. I saw him looking very concentrated along with the players.

“The match came out well, they played with precision and showed character. We took the lead straight away and then controlled it well.

“I was nervous, as you never know what can happen in football,” said the patron from the stands in Abu Dhabi.

“It was also a strange atmosphere, as there was so much silence around me. There was no real enthusiasm and the people in the VIP section didn't cheer on either side.”

Inter will take on Mazembe in the Final on Saturday, the African side that caused a huge upset by beating Brazilians Internacional 2-0.
