Jose Mourinho “was the 12th man on the field and a great leader, while Rafa Benitez has a different approach,” said Inter director Marco Tronchetti Provera.
The President of Pirelli and Board of Directors member of Inter gave his view of the two tacticians in Spanish newspaper Marca.
“Who do I prefer out of Mourinho and Benitez? I am not the one to talk about them as men,” said Tronchetti Provera.
“I really liked Mourinho for his leadership qualities, as at the end of the day he was like the 12th man on the field.
“Benitez has a different approach. Let's just say he is an intellectual of football and develops it in a different way.
“They are two great Coaches, but very different.”
