Two-year deal for Rafa

RAFAEL BENITEZ has been confirmed as the new coach of Inter Milan.

The club announced the Spaniard has signed a two-year deal at the San Siro.

Internazionale, the Italian and European champions, moved swiftly to snap up Benitez, who left Liverpool last week as they sought a replacement for Jose Mourinho who left for Real Madrid earlier this summer.

Benitez is to be introduced to the club's fans at a press conference next Tuesday.
