Liverpool dropped points away to Stoke today following Rafael Benitez’s moment of madness yesterday. Following his bizarre rant, his team were unable to score against Stoke, who were in the relegation zone at the start of the day.
Had Benitez spent more time focussing on Liverpool’s game today, rather than compiling notes about Sir Alex Ferguson, maybe his side would have been better off.
Rafa’s bad news doesn’t end there though, as he now faces the possibility of an FA charge.
The FA have today confirmed that they will review Rafael Benitez’s comments in their “full context” before deciding whether they need to take action or not.
Benitez is essentially claiming FA favouritism towards United, by suggesting that official are swayed by our manager and that the FA let off our manager for things they would not other managers.
