Inter striker Diego Milito has become grumpy and distracted according to his agent Fernando Hidalgo, who has voiced his opinion against Rafael Benitez.
The mood is sombre with Milito. And he seems upset with Inter, who replaced the departed Jose Mourinho with Rafael Benitez in the summer.
Now the saga is having profound consequences, claims Hidalgo.
"Diego doesn't feel the trust from his new coach," the agent told Il Corriere dello Sport.
"The Portuguese made him feel indispensable. He made him feel secure and he would transmit tranquility.
"These things don't happen now. In fact he is always under scrutiny. And when it's time for a player to come off it's always Milito."
Things have changed fast since Mourinho's departure, but the momentum is not with Milito as the agent continued with his catastrophic comments. For his part, Milito has looked pale this term, unable to break away from the Mourinhoisms.
"Diego is not tranquil, but being a professional he knows these things can happen," added the agent.
"He wants to come out of this fast even though he doesn't feel the trust he had last season.
"Someone like Milito needs the support from his coach to be at his best."
