Rafa Benítez Delicately Alludes to Alex Ferguson Hypocrisy
by Brian Phillips · January 9, 2009
Speaking of mind games: look what happened at the Liverpool press conference this morning. Asked about Alex Ferguson’s mind-gamesy claim that Liverpool’s players might not be able to handle the pressure of leading the league, Liverpool manager Rafa Benítez calmly produced a sheet of paper containing a list of previous Alex Ferguson statements and began to read from it, initiating a several-minutes-long attack on Ferguson’s integrity during which he accused the ruby knight of everything from ruining the Respect campaign to masterminding Fox’s 2002 cancellation of beloved Joss Whedon sci-fi vehicle Firefly. This could get ugly fast. People loved that show. Fox never gave it a chance.
