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

Benitez told Spanish radio station Onda Cero on Monday that "no, I have not been 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.
