Rafa quit threat after club cup win

RAFA BENITEZ'S Inter Milan swept to the world club title - before threatening to quit due to a lack of cash to spend.

After a comfortable 3-0 success over Congolese side TP Mazembe in Abu Dhabi, the former Liverpool coach lashed out at club bosses.

"There are three possibilities," he said. "One, 100 per cent support for the coach and buy four or five players to build a stronger team with competition among the players to be able to carry on winning matches and trophies.

"Two, carry on like this without a project, without planning, and go ahead with one person to blame, for the whole season.

"The third is to speak to my agent to reach an agreement if there is not this support. Simple."

But outspoken president Massimo Moratti hit back, saying: "It's not the moment to ask for reinforcements."

First-half goals from Goran Pandev and Samuel Eto'o and a late strike by substitute Jonathan Biabiany gave the Italian team their fifth trophy of 2010 and third world title.

It was welcome respite for Benitez whose side are struggling in seventh place in Serie A and struggled to qualify for the Champions League knockout stages behind Tottenham.

Mazembe had become the first African side to reach the final since the competition switched to its current format in 2005
