Napoli boss Rafa Benitez says that his time at Inter Milan was unsuccessful as the higher powers did not listen to his call for reinforcements.
The Spaniard came in to replace Jose Mourinho at the club back in 2010 but was sacked around six months later after a string of disappointing results.
Inter failed to recover despite coming off the back of their mosts successful season ever, and got worse last season as the Nerazzurri battled to a ninth place finish.
"I prefer to remember only the positive things from my time at Inter," Benitez told Minuto 116.
"For example, the fact we won the Italian Super Cup and Club World Cup.
"However, many people pass judgment without knowing what really happened. The truth is that the club and technical staff sat down together to plan a renewal of the squad, including the names of new players, but these suggestions were never followed.
"The way I see it, this was the cause of everything that happened at Inter that year and possibly even in the following campaigns."
He continued, "In order to continue winning, it is crucial to know when to renew the side. Sooner or later it has to be done.
"Now I have the opportunity for a new experience in Italy. I hope it will be a long one, because that would mean we had success and achieved our objectives."
