Rafael Benítez says he is happy at Inter Milan but is under no illusions over the sizeable challenge that lies ahead.

“It’s a real challenge,” said former Liverpool manager Benítez, 50, who took over from Jose Mourinho at the San Siro this summer.

“Winning three titles already – now we have the chance to win six – starting with the Italian Super Cup and then the European Super Cup.

“We’ll try to do our best in every competition and see what happens. My idea is always one step at a time. We’ll go for the first one and then see what happens after.”

When asked whether he thought fan’s expectations at Inter posed a bigger challenge than the financial constraints he was forced to worked under during his time at Liverpool, he said: “Two different things, so now we have a new opportunity to win trophies, and settle down and do well.

“The chairman here is a very nice person and he has passion for his club. He understands the game. So that is totally different to the situation that we had in the last years at Liverpool.”

Inter play MLS side FC Dallas in a pre-season friendly in Texas on Thursday.
