APPIANO GENTILE - Rafael Benitez is very surprised to learn that he is still the focus of attention on the eve of tomorrow's English Premier League match between Manchester United and his former club Liverpool. The Spanish coach is entirely focused on Inter and the upcoming Serie A games, starting with tomorrow afternoon's clash in Palermo.
At the end of today's press conference at Inter's training ground, and after reading the comments of Alex Ferguson reported by British and Italian websites, Benitez remarked: "I am genuinely surprised that an experienced and important coach like him said these things and talked so much about me. I have been in Italy for three months now... I can only add that the Liverpool fans know the story and the truth. And they know that it is easy to pass judgment if you have been in power for 24 years."
