Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti has commented on Inter's mediocre start to the 2010-11 season, with just one win in four matches under new coach Rafael Benitez.
Jose Mourinho led Inter to an unprecedented treble last term, but Benitez's reign has been far from impressive in the early stages. However Ancelotti believes it's only a matter of time before the players become accustomed to the ex-Liverpool manager's way of doing things.
"The Nerazzurri are having some difficulty because they must adapt to a new coach," the former Milan boss suggested to Sky Sports.
"There are different preparations and ideas and new tactics to assimilate."
Reports from Italy suggest that Benitez could shake things up tactically in the next match, switching to a diamond midfield rather than a 4-2-3-1. Click here for that story.
