Default Rafael Benitez fired

Congrats for Garreth Bale wrecking inter and giving him the boot. Guy is a total d-bag and just ruined Liverpool.

Yep, he brought the Champions League more than 20 years later, but he "ruined" Liverpool.

Default Re: Rafael Benitez fired

He's not fired yet by the way.

If he will be it's not for Bale, Tottenham or anything related to the Champions League but because they are doing bad in Serie A.
He's been given a pass up to now because of the many injuries of key players, but after winning the Club World Cup he kinda ruined everything by giving an "ultimatum" to his president (he wants some trade in January or he'll go). And Inter's president doesn't like this kind of things, that's why the rumours of him being fired are so relevant atm.

Rafa seemed great at his early stint with Liverpool. Dunno what went wrong since then.

I really don't like him. After winning CL with Liverpool (with team assembled by Gerard Houllier), he totally ruind the team, and now he's doing the same to Inter (but without winning CL part)...

He is not fired yet but he will be very soon

Inter already lost the Calcho and are playing against Bayern ( Robben will be back) in the CL, so i cant see any other coach winning a trophy.
Too many injuries , Sneijder and Milito are off form, this season is lost for Inter



PS. Visca Barca

The fact that Mourinho set the bar so high by essentially winning everything last year didn't help his case but that's still no excuse when your sitting 13 points back from the top of the table and currently on the outside looking in for Champions League birth. I would say that his firing is inevitable if it hasn't happened already...

Rafa basically said the morratti, we need new young players cause the squad is too old and needs competitionn, either buy some or fire me, and moratti fired him. Morratti is a very stubborn man, as is rafa, it was never really going to work.

As far as him destroying liverpool, i think thats total BS, he took over the club, won the champions league, made them a title challenger, bought in some of the best players in the world (reina, torres, alonso, mascherano) and completley revamped the youth system so we can have good players in the future, bought over the barcelona youth coach as the main man, (ps. watch out for suso)

look at the change in culture liverpool had under benitez, they went from buying players from poor teams and selling them to poor teams. under bezitez they bought quality players from great teams or got sold to great teams, he moved liverpool into the 21st century.

i would personally love to see him come back and finnish what he started, look at the team from 2 seasons ago when we finnished 2nd, that was the time to push onfor greater things, instead, we were forced to sell our best players and buy mediocre ones, soley beacause of the owners
