I personally do not like Rafa Benitez, never have and never will and it seems that Jose Mourinho has not warmed to him either. After Mrs Benitez had made a comment about him, Jose responded in true Mourinho fashion!
So to Mrs Benitez and the comments she made first of all. Speaking recently after her husband somehow landed the Real Madrid job, she stated the following:
"Real Madrid are the third of Jose Mourinho's old teams Rafa has coached.
We tidy up his messes. If you think about it, of course you end up crossing paths. There are only a few world-class clubs out there."
Now I initially thought she doesn't know what she is talking about and didn't pay much attention to her comments because lets face it, she is talking out of her arse.
After the game against Barcelona yesterday (Watch Eden Hazard's wonder goal here!), Jose was asked of her comments and he gave the same brutal reaction similar to that he gave to Arsene Wenger when he labelled him a "specialist in failure".
He responded to comments made by Mrs Benitez by saying:
"The lady is a bit confused, with all respect. I'm not laughing. She is confused because her husband went to Chelsea to replace Roberto Di Matteo and he went to Real Madrid and replaced Carlo Ancelotti.
The only club where her husband replaced me was at Inter Milan, where in six months he destroyed the best team in Europe at the time.
And for her also to think about me and to speak about me, I think the lady needs to occupy her time and if she takes care of her husband's diet she will have less time to speak about me."
Fantastic from Mourinho despite some form of retribution coming his way no doubt!
Jose has a valid point it was only Inter Milan where he became Mourinho's direct replacement and lasted half a season before he was sacked!
Plenty of Chelsea fans and non Chelsea fans state that he did exactly what he was supposed to do at our club by finishing inside the top four and winning the Europa League. I disagree.
He came into the club with an amazing squad of players and achieved the minimum requirement. You look at his complete record as manager here, all the results and you will see that he could and should have finished higher up the table.
That's the thing with Benitez, normally you hand him a good squad and he can manage, when he is asked to build his own squad, he crumbles and leaves a total mess behind.
Liverpool fans will disagree but think for a moment, think passed the success of Istanbul and the FA Cup and think of the mess your squad was in when he left Anfield. It has taken you lot this long to try and rebuild and put together a strong enough squad to challenge again - he left you in a mess and the facts are true!
I am sure he will do OK at Real Madrid this season but I cannot see them winning La Liga above Barcelona. Let's see what happens to Rafa then shall we. Maybe he will be sacked and WILL have time to concentrate on his diet as Jose Mourinho has suggested!
