Mourinho: 'Has Rafa lost again?'

Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho has rubbed salt into Rafa Benitez's wounds by expressing his surprise at the latter's problems at Inter.

The treble winners have faltered since Mourinho's departure in May.

They sensationally lost 2-1 to Chievo at the weekend and currently lie sixth in Serie A, nine points adrift of League leaders Milan.

When told about Inter's latest defeat Mourinho apparently replied: "But how? Has he lost again?

"It's incredible. They are already nine points behind…"

Pressed as to why Benitez is struggling, Mourinho said: "Sure at Inter it's all very different to England."

Finally, the Special One gave an insight into his own future.

"When I finish in Spain, I want to return to England. But meanwhile I hope to see out my contract.

"It was tough for my kids to leave their friends and teachers in Italy. I also have to think about their happiness."
