Rafa Benitez and the crisis at Inter Milan

Did he lose his power? What is going on with Benitez? Will he ever be the same again?

Since the beginning of 2009-2010 season back when he was coaching Liverpool the questions started to come one by one. Yes true, Liverpool had it’s own problems off the field, however, on the pitch things were not looking good either. To give him his credit Benitez was trying to say the little and keep his head down.

The media were not helping, critics from every corner of the world were pouring in and at the end Rafa lost his magic with the Kop and his days were numbered then. Things should have been different at Inter Milan, after Jose Mourinho’s treble there was plenty of optimism around the blue and black half of the San Siro.

Rafa was supposed to pick up where Mourinho left off with the side, instead everything since then has been going downhill for the Internazionale. The European Super Cup has gone, defeated by Europa League winners Atletico Madrid in August, defeats to Roma and last week to fierce rivals AC Milan followed and now with Rafa’s latest loss to Chievo its time for Rafa to take a break from football.

At least for himself, the fans wants to see the old Rafa, the Benitez of 2005, the Champions League winner, the Rafa of Valencia, where he won La Liga from Barcelona & Real Madrid. If we don’t see the old Benitez soon, it might be too little too late if he does not recharge his batteries.
