New coach – Rafa Benitez; Maicon staying

Rafa Benitez is almost our new coach, this is what his former midfield player, Javier Mascherano said: “Only someone like Benitez could take the place of a coach like Mourinho.”

“He is a great coach and is a winner. He will find himself well in Italy because of the tactical game. Rafa studies everything. Inter have made a good choice.”

“Me with him? I don’t know about my future, but I spent great years with Benitez. My football is his football.” (Source)

On other side, after Maicon “said” he would love to play for Real Madrid, this is what he said now:

“I want to stay in Italy,” he told the press. I will only leave if Massimo Moratti sells me. My intention is to stay with Inter. I would only go away if the club asked me to.”
