Former Inter Striker Juergen Klinsmann: Rafael Benitez Is The 'Right Choice' To Succeed Jose Mourinho

Former Inter striker Jurgen Klinsmann has backed new manager Rafael Benitez to be a success in Italy.

Benitez, who left Liverpool in June by mutual consent, joined the Champions League holders following Jose Mourinho’s move to Real Madrid.

Klinsmann - who scored 40 goals between 1989 and 1992 for Inter - is pleased for Nerazzurri supporters after their club tasted success in Europe’s biggest club competition for the first time since 1965, and says Massimo Moratti made the right call.

“President Massimo Moratti made the right choice when trying to replace Mourinho on the bench,” he told RaiSport.

“I wish Benitez the absolute best of luck, as he is a well-prepared and competent coach.

“Inter are coming off an extraordinary year and I am truly very happy for all the Inter fans, as they deserved to feel such joy.”
