The European and Italian champions have managed only one win in five Serie A games and Sunday's 1-0 defeat to AC Milan left Inter six points behind their league-leading city rivals in the standings.

Moratti has however denied reports that he is considering a coaching change, telling Gazzetta dello Sport: "This is an invention and I've read it in the newspapers.

"We have chosen this project and it will go forward. I have full confidence in Benitez.

"That, however, does not mean that I can't be disappointed after Sunday's game, but this does not change the club thinks in any way."

Benitez replaced Jose Mourinho in the summer after the mercurial Portuguese led Inter to a treble of Champions League, Coppa Italia and Serie A prior to joining Real Madrid.

Inter face Chievo in Serie A this weekend looking to end a three-match winless run.
