Inter defeat at Tottenham caused many eyebrows to raise. Last season treble is a considerable heavy legacy and Benitez is now facing the problems everyone expected when Mourinho announced he was leaving.
Without mentioning Benitez once Massimo Moratti did not hide his disappointment: "At Tottenham we didn't play well. Not at all. We lacked determination and organisation. We can't achieve any of our goals playing this way". Inter Milan chairman and owner adds some more pressure on Benitez, questioning Bale supposed greatness: "We had already seen Bale in the first leg. He's a good player but having already seen how good he was we could have stopped him the second time. Anyway, I don't know...". Too many injured players, is another issue: "What's my opinion? Same as yours. I think someone has to step back and change something. There is the urgency to pass from theory to practise".
