Benitez failed to continue Mourinho’s work as Inter are seventh in the Italian Serie A with 13 points behind their rivals from Milan but with 2 games less. Inter failed to win the European Super Cup against Atletico Madrid and finished second in Champions League group behind Tottenham. The only trophy for Benitez at Inter is the Club World Cup.

There is no official statement regarding the Spanish coach situation. More than that Inter president Massimo Moratti declared that he is unaware of the situation :”All this is unexpected and I have not had a chance to hear anyone” .

The president also declared that he had no meetings or discussion with other coaches to take the Inter job. However there are three candidates: Leonardo, Zenga and Spalletti.

The Brazilian has the biggest chances as both Spalletti and Zenga have contracts in Russia and Saudi Arabia respectively. Spalletti is the fresh winner of Russian championship with Zenit and the Russian club declared that they will not allow their coach to leave  the club now.
