Inter president Massimo Moratti announced Tuesday that an agreement has been reached for Rafa Benitez to become the club's new coach. Moratti said the only thing outstanding was a countersignature to complete the deal, adding that Benitez was not in Italy. "We've reached agreement, we've finalized the last details, which regardless weren't important, and tomorrow we'll announce when Rafa Benitez will be presented," Moratti said. The Spanish coach, who left Liverpool last Thursday after six years in charge of the Premier League club, will succeed Jose Mourinho, who left for Real Madrid.
