Wesley Sneijder Latest To Criticize Former Inter Milan Coach Rafael Benitez

Wesley Sneijder looks to be back to his form of last season, having scored two goals in Inter Milan's last two matches and reminding everyone of his creative abilities. That creativity was nearly absent at the beginning of the season, with Sneijder looking like a shadow of the man who helped lead Netherlands to a World Cup final.

Sneijder has now come forward to say that part of the reason for his poor run of form was due to former Inter manager Rafael Benitez. Benitez tried to shift Sneijder to the striker role, rather than keeping him in midfield, where he excels as a creative playmaker.The Dutch international says he feels more comfortable in his regular position, but that it's not just him: everyone prefers the style of new manager Leonardo to that of Benitez.

That comfort level is certainly reflected on the pitch. Inter have won seven of their last eight Serie A matches and now sit just five points behind AC Milan, with a game in hand on their rivals.
