interview mit rafa nachdem spiel
RAFAEL BENITEZ fired the first shots at Jose Mourinho last night after Liverpool set up a Champions League semi-final clash with Chelsea.

The Liverpool manager has had a tense, sometimes hostile relationship with his Stamford Bridge counterpart.

And Benitez said: "We were good friends until we started beating them. He has a very good relationship with all the managers he beats." Benitez has twice outwitted Mourinho in semi-finals, most notably when he masterminded the defeat of Chelsea two years ago on the way to the historic Champions League triumph in Istanbul.

And the Spanish coach offered a caustic broadside last night after his side completed their demolition of PSV Eindhoven. Benitez said: "When we started to beat him, then he changed his mind. But fighting with the managers of top sides is normal, and fighting with him is normal.

"I do not like it. But I didn't start the war of words... he started it yesterday!"

Mourinho seemed to offer a sly dig at Liverpool when he said they would start favourites for the semi-final - because the Merseyside club had only one competition to aim at, while Chelsea still have four.

But Benitez believes that his team are favourites only because they have shown the quality in the competition so far this season, to suggest they have the tactical experience and freshness of legs to cause another upset against the English champions.

"Yes, Chelsea again - we know them and they know us. But always we have confidence, as the manager of Liverpool you are right to have confidence in this team," he said.

"I believe we will win. Chelsea can not change what happened two years ago even if they do not accept it.

"They are a very good team and they have spent a lot of money on some very good players. It will be tough."

Liverpool joined Chelsea and Manchester United in the last four thanks to a goal from Peter Crouch last night, to add to the three they scored in Eindhoven a week ago, to complete the formality of victory

Ich hoffe Rafa begibt sich niemals auf das geistige Niveau dieses portugiesischen Lackaffen und lässt sich nicht von ihm provozieren...

Ich habe es schon öfter gesagt und werde es immer sagen: Rafa ist unbestritten einer der besten Trainer seiner Zunft. Was ihn so auszeichnet - er ist sowohl MENSCHLICH als auch SPORTLICH Weltklasse und beweist sowohl im Sieg als auch in der Niederlage Stil, Souveränität, Klasse und Vorbildfunktion... etwas, was man von vielen anderen Trainern auf diesem Niveau ( insbes. @ "the special one" :sneg:) nicht behaupten kann... auch wenn er noch soviele Titel holt - Mr. Arrogant muss und kann von Rafa noch viel lernen um zu den ganz großen Trainern der Fußballgeschichte gezählt zu werden ;)

100% (SAINT) RAFA BENITEZ :)
