Benitez plays down transfer talk

20 July 2010 03:08
Internazionale coach Rafael Benitez has revealed that the transfer rumours surrounding Maicon and Mario Balotelli are not bothering him. The former Valencia and Liverpool manager replaced Jose Mourinho in the summer after the Portuguese tactician departed for Real Madrid and the Spaniard suggests he has little to do with the transfer dealings at the San Siro. Speaking to La Gazzetta dello Sport: "Maicon and Balotelli? I always remember what the former manager of Real Madrid, Luis Molowny, said: let's wait and see what happens, don't act with haste. "The club decides the transfers, I adapt. Do I fear being remembered in a few years as the coach who let Balotelli go? I repeat: I do not control the market. One player doesn't make a team and Inter has many strong players."
