Simoni: 'Bring back Benitez!'

Former Inter Coach Gigi Simoni has made a surprising suggestion. “I'd recall Rafa Benitez to the bench.”

The Nerazzurri are wondering whether to keep hold of Leonardo after bringing him in on Christmas Eve to replace Benitez.

“It may seem paradoxical, but in case Leonardo is not confirmed on the Inter bench, I would recall Benitez,” said Simoni.

“I don't think he should've been sent away in the first place. Benitez is a talented Coach who was forced to work in impossible conditions.”

Simoni has a bone to pick with President Massimo Moratti, as he was famously sacked on the day he picked up his award as Coach of the Year in 1999.
