Inler: 'Benitez already wanted me'

Gokhan Inler reveals why he’s pleased Rafa Benitez is the new Napoli Coach. “He already wanted me at Liverpool.”

The Swiss international midfielder spoke to Blick newspaper in his homeland about the changes.

“Benitez already wanted me at Liverpool,” revealed the 28-year-old.

It had been reported Inler would like to follow ex-Napoli boss Walter Mazzarri to Inter.

“I am not going to Inter, despite what has been written about me, as I’m not thinking about any transfer.

“I have a contract with Napoli that I intend to respect and I want to continue playing there.”
