New Inter Milan boss Rafael Benitez has insisted comparisons with predecessor Jose Mourinho were wide of the mark.

Benitez was unveiled as the new Inter boss following his departure from Liverpool and Mourinho's switch to Real Madrid.

But he is adamant his approach will differ to that of the Portuguese. "I don't think I am the anti-Mourinho but I am different," he said.

"I am a coach who likes winning, who likes playing good football, though, so I don't think we are different in that."

Benitez was delighted to have landed at Inter after a difficult end to his six-year spell at Anfield.

He added: "The main idea of Inter and of Italy is that you breathe football.

"You breathe football and I like that.

"The club is a great one and we will try to do everything possible to be the best."
