    Rafa to Inter

    Quote Originally Posted by Sky Sports
    Inter Milan have reached an agreement with Rafa Benitez to become their new manager, club president Massimo Moratti has revealed.

    The Serie A giants have been looking for a replacement coach since Jose Mourinho opted to take on a fresh challenge at Spanish giants Real Madrid.

    The Portuguese coach departed Giuseppe Meazza at the end of the 2009/10 campaign after guiding Inter to an unprecedented Treble, which saw them land the Serie A title, Coppa Italia and the UEFA Champions League.

    Once it became apparent that Mourinho was looking to move on, rumours began circulating as to who his possible replacement might be.

    Spanish coach Benitez was considered to be a leading candidate and his departure from Liverpool last week opened the door for a switch to Italy.

    Inter quickly identified him as their number one choice for the role and have pressed ahead with formal negotiations.

    Presentation

    Talks have now reached a conclusion and Moratti confirmed that Benitez has agreed to become Inter's new coach.

    "We've got an agreement, we finalised the last details that in any case weren't important," he told the club's official website.

    "Tomorrow (Wednesday) we will say when Rafa Benitez will be presented.

    "All we need is a counter-signature. In any case I think Benitez is not in Italy and will arrive here for the presentation."

    Benitez will arrive at Inter fresh from a six-year stint at Liverpool which saw him land the Champions League crown in 2005 and the 2006 FA Cup.

    He also enjoyed considerable success in his homeland with Valencia prior to moving to Anfield, winning two Primera Liga titles and the Uefa Cup.


    Going to be a tough act to follow Jose.


    RIP Warrior

    Re: Managerial Comings & Goings

    Everyone probably knows by know but still. Would be nice to now people's view on it.

    Liverpool have confirmed the appointment of former Fulham boss Roy Hodgson as their new manager.



    The 62-year-old has signed a three-year deal at Anfield to replace Rafa Benitez following the Spaniard's departure last month.

    Hodgson ,who has been touted a possible successor to Fabio Capello should the Italian leave his role with England, has been Liverpool's top target for some time and they have now finally got their man after agreeing a compensation package with Fulham.
    Hodgson's stock has risen sharply since guiding Fulham to the final of the Europa League last season and he was named manager of the year by the League Managers Association in 2009/10.

    The former Inter Milan and Blackburn boss is relishing the prospect of taking over at Liverpool describing the job as the 'biggest in club football'.

    Honoured

    "This is the biggest job in club football and I'm honoured to be taking on the role of manager of Britain's most successful football club," Hodgson told the club's official website.

    "I look forward to meeting the players and the supporters and getting down to work at Melwood.

    "I am both proud and excited at the prospect of working as the Liverpool manager.

    "I don't think there are many jobs that would have tempted me away from Fulham, to be perfectly honest.

    "I had such a good relationship with the chairman and the chief executive, the players were magnificent to work with and everything was as good as it gets, but on the other hand when there was a chance that Liverpool wanted me, and they asked to speak to me, I asked the chairman for permission.

    "He wasn't too happy to give it but fortunately for me this job came about and I am really happy to be here.

    "It'd be foolish to compare but it'd also be dishonest to say anything other than it's going to be a highlight of my career.

    "I have worked long and hard to reach the level I have reached."

    He is likely to be joined at Anfield by his trusted assistant Mike Kelly, although Sammy Lee - brought in by Benitez because of his coaching credentials and links to the club's successful past - is expected to be given a role somewhere in the new set-up.

    Look's like Jol won't be going after all

    Martin Jol is reportedly set to snub Fulham to stay with Dutch giants Ajax.

    Former Tottenham manager Jol was expected to be named the Fulham boss this week after holding talks with the West London club about succeeding Roy Hodgson at Craven Cottage.

    Jol had earlier indicated he was prepared to leave Ajax and move to Fulham because of uncertainty over the futures of a number of star players at Ajax.

    However, reports emanating from Holland claim Jol has agreed to stick with Ajax after last-ditch talks with the club's hierarchy.

    "They (Fulham) were interested but in principle I will stay at Ajax," Jol told De Telegraaf.

    However, Sky Sports sources understands Jol is keen to move to Fulham and that the switch is being held up by Ajax's refusal to negotiate over compensation.

    It is understood that Jol wants to succeed Hodgson at Craven Cottage but his path is being blocked by Ajax, who are keen to retain the 54-year-old.

    The confirmation of Hughes as Fulham boss

    ark Hughes could be set to raid his old club after being confirmed as Fulham's new manager.
    Hughes, who has agreed a two-year deal with the Cottagers, will appoint his own regular backroom staff that includes assistant Mark Bowen, Kevin Hitchcock and Eddie Niedzwiecki.
    The Welshman faces a number of dilemmas. Firstly, goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer is a target for Arsenal and Hughes will need to pull out all the stops to persuade him to stay. Left-back Paul Konchesky has been linked with a move to Liverpool while Hughes will turn to former club Manchester City to try and land Craig Bellamy, Stephen Ireland and Roque Santa Cruz.
    Fulham's first-team coach Ray Lewington, who was caretaker manager following Roy Hodgson's departure to Liverpool, is expected to stay after being assured there is a place for him at Craven Cottage. Goalkeeping coach Mike Kelly is expected to leave for Liverpool.
    Hughes acknowledged Hodgson's success, most notably taking them to the Europa League final last season, but declared that he already has a vision for the next stage of Fulham's future.
    "I have discussed my aspirations with both the chairman and (chief executive) Alistair Mackintosh and believe that we are aligned in our aims for what can realistically be achieved here," Hughes told the club's official website.
    "I am joining on the back of two of the most successful seasons in the club's history and that in itself brings with it the challenges of expectation and ambition.
    "I am confident that with some additions to the squad, hard work and commitment, we can move this club forward in the right direction.
    "I hope the Fulham fans will enjoy some special times during this season's campaign and we will work hard to achieve that.
    "I'm looking forward to working with the squad as soon as possible, and making sure the on-pitch preparations are complete before the first competitive ball is kicked in August."

    Weird timing with O'Neill for sure... I've heard issues over Milner's sale from a couple places, so I guess that makes some sense...
