Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho would have had a private little chuckle looking at his former team Inter Milan’s record in the Italian Serie A. 13 games into the competition, the side has won only five of the games and lost equal number to be perched at the number six position.
Under Mourinho, Inter Milan had won three titles last season at the Italian Serie A, Coppa Italia and Supercoppa Italiana but have stumbled badly under their new manager, Rafa Benitez.
After the now-ninth placed Chievo had pulled one under their feet with a 2-1 win over the defening champions, the side looks like a pale shadow of their previous season. And Mourinho had his time taking a dig at the new manager Benitez.
Speaking to the media, Mourinho was informed that Inter Milan had lost their game to Chievo. He replied, “But how? Has he lost again?
Showing that he was very much in tune with the happenings at the Serie A, Mourinho said, “It’s incredible. They are already nine points behind…”
Moving in for the kills, Mourinho had his own take for the new manager’s struggles, “Sure at Inter it’s all very different to England.”
For the record, Mourinho’s Real Madrid are currently at the top of the La Liga charts, with 32 points from 12 games followed closely by Barcelona who have 31 in as many.

Tottenham are looking to try to Madrid striker Karim Benzema on loan in the January transfer window but word is Liverpool are looking to sign him.
The French international has found it hard to get selected for first team action at the Spanish giants and it is thought that Harry Redknapp will be looking to offer the striker a way out of his misery while furthering Tottenham’s push to be within the top four of the Premier League again.
Benzema is reportedly valued at around £15-20 million and, Liverpool director of football strategy Damien Comolli revealed the club could break the bank to bring a ‘world-class’ player to Anfield in January
Liverpool will have more money power to play with than spurs in the window and a move would be far better for the player than a loan deal.
Tv pundit jamie redknapp has urged the red to sign the player up asap.
“Liverpool need a striker and they should look no further than Karim Benzema,” the ex-Liverpool midfielder wrote in the Daily Mail.
“He played this game like it was his personal audition. He’s started only one league game for Real Madrid this season and we could all see last night that he is better than that. Benzema enjoyed his night and put on a bit of a show.
“The new Anfield owners have their first challenge: sign him.”
Real Madrid are interested in speaking to them about a move and Benzema could well be one of the hottest topics within the winter transfer window, question is spurs or Liverpool?
