Simeone would welcome Inter chance

Former Inter midfielder Diego Simeone has refused to rule out the possibility of becoming the club’s next coach if Rafa Benitez is sacked.
Benitez is under intense pressure to turn around Inter’s languishing season, and president Massimo Moratti has allegedly drawn up a list of experienced replacements. However, Simeone now seems like a surprise applicant, despite never having managed a club since retiring from playing four years ago.
He said: “I like to see that my name could be linked with the job, but I have a lot of respect for the people who work at the club at the moment. I am sure that Benitez will resolve the problems of the team and win the championship.
“It’s a shame about the situation at Inter, but I welcome my first opportunity to manage in Italy or Spain. Moratti? I have a good rapport with all the presidents that I played under.”

Simeone, 40, first played in Serie A 20 years ago with Pisa, but went on to have more celebrated stints with Inter and Lazio later in his career. The often-controversial player won 106 caps for Argentina. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
