Inter Milan boss looking to buy in January

Inter Milan is struggling with injuries to players such as Douglas Maicon, Julio Cesar, Walter Samuel, Esteban Cambiasso, Sulley Muntari, MacDonald Mariga, Thiago Motta and David Suazo.

Benitez said: “I didn’t expect all these difficulties at the start of my Inter career, as this is a side that had won a great deal last season and I thought we could do better.

“Now we are in this situation and all we can do is to stay united until January, as I told President Massimo Moratti and director Marco Branca. Then we’ll see if we can do something.”
