Former Inter Player Evaristo Beccalossi: I Was Not Suprised But Disappointed At The Departure Of Rafael Benitez

Member of the 1979-80 Serie A winning Inter side, Evaristo Beccalossi has been left disappointed with the departure of Rafa Benitez.
Former Inter player Evaristo Beccalossi has commented on the departure of Rafael Benitez as well as on the possibility of Leonardo switching from red to blue in Milan.

Beccalossi told TMW that it was no suprise that Benitez and Inter have parted company, but the manner in which they have done so has been very professional.

"I am not suprised at what has happened but definitely disappointed," Beccalossi told the Italian publication. "I think Benitez is technically organised, serious and a good person. The agreement reached as a whole demonstrates the professionalism of the Spanish coach."

"Not even the players were suprised, the news was in the air for some time and I don't think anyone was unprepared for what happened.

Beccalossi further commented on the potential arrival of Leonardo as coach, after a long history with the Rossoneri as a player and coach.

"Leonardo is a young coach who has yet to prove his worth. Certainly to return to try and put pressure on Milan is very charming," he said.

Finally Beccalossi added his thoughts on the rumoured arrival of Kaka from Real Madrid.

"We need to understand how he is physically and what he can give the team, considering a balance needs to be achieved in midfield alongside [Wesley] Sneijder."
