Milan - Rafa Benitez says he is still the coach of Inter Milan, despite Italian media reports that he is set to be fired.

Benitez said that "I am surprised because I have seen a lot of headlines of newspapers and I have been phoned by a lot of people asking me if I have been fired, and that is not true at all."

Benitez has reportedly angered club officials with his recent comments about team management.
