Adelina Chivu: If Jose call’s us, we’re coming

The magazine One, Adelina Chivu, Inter defender Cristian’s wife, has made a statement quite unexpected on the future of his life companion, a future that emerges from what seems oriented Real Madrid: “If Jose Mourinho called Cristian Real , we will move to Madrid. This is football. We do not have a home in the truest sense, we bought this apartment in Milan two years ago, but I never thought that this was our final home. At the end of Cristi career probably will return to Romania, but until you play, you can not. I also had to stop working because of football … “said Mrs. Chivu.

Market rumors start to go crazy, but only a week and a half ago, Chivu’s agent Victor Becali, said FcInterNews: Chivu is happy in Italy, and has a contract until 2012, “He added,” No contact and no offer, but you never know what can happen and the transfer market and just started … “and attention to something important.

Mourinho made the same mistake as Ibra?

Inter is a club so unique that you can hardly forget. Above all, Massimo Moratti is a gentleman and a president really insuperable. Are just a few days, in fact, Jose Mourinho to regret the idyllic relationship with Moratti and immediately find the first argument with Florentino Perez, Real Madrid’s new president. In less than a month of signing with the company blanca, Jose met the first diplomatic incident with a number of merengues, accident based on statements made by Perez at the weekend in Jordan. During his trip, Florentino has ensured that Mourinho would have won many titles in its very first season at Real, which Jose convidide not at all, because the first day at Madrid has always said he needs at least a season of adjustment. Everything is reported by Don Balon, who then gives the background to the quarrel between the two: after hearing the statements of Perez, Mourinho would contact him and told him to think about monetizing to buy players, and not to speak of his ambitions triumphalist because the ‘only thing that follows is the pressure on his current players.

It does not end there: according to the newspaper always Iberian Jose Florentino would tell to keep my mouth shut from now on. “Mou not understand how the president can talk about victory even if it still has not completed a purchase from him asked,” writes Don Balon, “and if Valdano has not even sold a player who believes that JM does not serve the project.” In short, the golden age of Inter are just a beautiful memory, buying ‘drones’ too. And now who knows this affair can not affect even the purchase of Maicon. The confrontation between the presidency and coach has already started after less than a month … Good luck, Jose!

Rafael Benitez presentation at Inter

Rafael Benitez Inter
Inter’s new coach Rafael Benitez was unveiled to the media today in a press conference at the Centro Sportivo Angelo Moratti.

The Spanish tactician signed a two-year contract with the Italian and European champions last week after a six-year spell with Premier League outfit Liverpool.

“I want to thank Inter for this opportunity, and the fans too, who immediately welcomed me with affection. I am very pleased and proud to be here,” said Benitez, who sat alongside Inter chief executive Ernesto Paolillo, vice managing director Stefano Filucchi and technical director Marco Branca.

“It wasn’t easy to leave Liverpool, but the situation has changed and I needed to move,” explained Benitez. “I had the perfect opportunity with Inter, a massive club, and I’m really pleased to be here. Inter is a fantastic club. They did very well this year and we will see if we can keep this level next season.

“I have been in contact with 95 percent of my ex-players. I thanked them for everything and they wished me luck. Gerrard? I spoke to him on his birthday and for now he only wants to talk about the World Cup.

“Everything is fine, the relationship with my old players is very good. The club was fantastic and the fans were amazing so it was a sad day when I had to go, but things changed so I had to do it. Now I am here in a new club and I am very pleased to be here.”

Benitez has joined treble-winning Inter in the sign of continuity and he hopes to repeat what was achieved by José Mourinho’s team last season. “With the club I have to talk and analyse the future,” he said. “Mourinho did a great job here but I’m a different coach. I hope to be successful here and try to win some titles. The main thing is to keep the team’s mentality and try to win some titles. We will see at the end of the year if I have been successful or not.

“Will there be any new players? Yes, I think so. I hope to buy good players, of a good level. The mentality is to win by playing well, and playing well depends on the players you have. The players here are good. They like playing good football and winning. We have so many high level players and Maicon, for example, is one of them. I wish all of our players at the World Cup the best of luck, including Maicon, who is important for us. I have to talk to the club about the transfer market. Samuel Eto’o? He sacrificed himself a lot for Inter last season. He is a good and intelligent player and I am sure he will make the same sacrifices again next year if needed.”

Benitez was asked if he shares the opinion of Diego Maradona that Cambiasso and Mascherano can’t play in the same team. He replied: “Maradona is the coach of the Argentina national team. Cambiasso is a top-level player for me. I am happy to have him here with us. Of these two players, he’s the only one we have.

“Coutinho? We have spoken about him. He’s young and he’s a good player. Balotelli? He’s a quality player and he’s important. I’m pleased he’s with us. Obviously I haven’t worked with him yet and the same goes for the other players.”

Replying to a question about past rumours of a move to Juventus, Benitez said: “I have no memory of this right now. There is a lot of talk in football, but ultimately the most important thing is actually joining a club. I have done this with Inter and I am very happy. This is the important thing.

“I think that after two years you will know me better. I like working hard and pushing my players. As for training sessions, we will obviously do closed training sessions because it’s important for the other teams not to see what we do, but there will be the occasional open session because it’s good for the team to feel the support of the fans.” (

Transfer romours

Kuyt – “Benitez is a fantastic coach, a great choice for Inter. Working with him was a great experience and I am grateful for the advice he gave me and what made me better. I read a lot about what is going on with my transfer to Inter, but I now have concentrated only on the WC. I have a contract with Liverpool and I respect it is a big club that has given me so much.”

Morabito on who will replace Maicon if he leaves: “They are following Jonathan, very good outside right of Cruzeiro.”
On question who is Benitez bringing with him from Liverpool: “Mascherano 100%. I’m sure Moratti will satisfy this wish as Rafa and Javier are very close. Inter will have one more Javier.”

– Manchester City have sent offer for David Silva – €35m, confrirmed by president of Valencia
– Toldo rejected offers from abroad, want to stay with Inter.
– Kolarov almost Real Madrid’s player.

Adriano about AS Roma

“First of all thank Rosella Sensi, who gave me the opportunity to come here and wear a shirt as prestigious as that of Rome, bringing with it a huge responsibility.

Although I have received other proposals, in the end I chose Rome because it somehow reminds me of Rio, to the warmth and friendly people.

Now I’m more mature, and are here to prove to everyone and I know that my form is currently not optimal, and are a bit ‘overweight, but the time to find the best physical condition is, and I already know how I work to get there.

I like to make certain movements in the field and I know I can make it useful.”
