Well, it is official now - or so says the Inter web page: Rafael Benitez is the new coach of F.C. Internazionale Milano.
The official line:
Inter welcomes Rafael Benitez. The Spanish coach signed a two-year contract this morning that will run until 30 June 2012.
Rafael Benitez will be unveiled to the media in a press conference at the Centro Sportivo Angelo Moratti in Appiano Gentile on Tuesday 15 June at 12:00.
And if that isn't enough, Inter has also pulled together a little biography which a bit self-servingly begins: "Rafael Maudes Benitez is one of the true greats of European football..."
Onward and Upward.
