Benitez Out

It was only a matter of time. See, in the real world, when you insult your boss, you are fired pretty quickly. Think Rafa just found this out.

After coming out and saying that he needed money and support to run Inter (less than 12mo after the Special One worked wonders with the same lineup), Inter came back and handed him the pink slip.
"Inter thank Rafael Benitez for his work in leading his team to success in the Italian Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup."
I ran this through the Google Italian to English translator and it came back as:
You lazy no good Spanish bum. We did more with the same squad last year. Here's your severance check. Don't let the door hit you on the way out.
Pretty harsh words.

All this after winning the prestigious Club World Cup in UAE earlier this month. What? It's not prestigious? Well, surely only the top clubs in the world attend. What? One club from each federation? You mean there wasn't much competition outside Europe on this? Oh well.

Rafa has returned to England after just 6 months in charge of Inter. At this rate, he may be back at Liverpool before the the winter break ends. At least that's what a lot of Reds fans are hoping.
