Rafa: Not fair
2nd May 2008
John Coates


Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez has blasted Chelsea and Manchester United for not resting players ahead of their second leg Champions League semi-finals.

The Spaniard is furious that both clubs played their first teams in the encounter at Stamford Bridge.

“It's unfairâ€

“Both Barcelona and ourselves rested players but Manchester United and Chelsea play their first teamâ€

“It's an unfair advantage and allows those teams to become, how do you say? Battle-hardened?â€

“If I knew they were going to play full teams then I would have played full team too. I spoke to Frank (Rijkaard) and he is unhappy about it as wellâ€

Benitez is now insisting the FA and UEFA look into the situation.

“Macherano received a long ban for talking to the referee and now Manchester United and Chelsea play full team and no bans for themâ€

“It's important that this is investigatedâ€

Steven Gerrard echoed his manager's sentiments by insisting that teams who are still in the league have an unfair advantage.

“They can afford to play the same team as their league games count for somethingâ€.

Spokesman from both United and Chelsea refused to comment.

what is he on about just cause we got to the final and he did not. And we did rest players against chelsea if any that should be complain it should be use and chelsea having to play a big match in the league then a Champions League semi-final a few days after that. And there also not chasing a double like us and chelsea.

IS this serious?
I've just got in from the pub; can't believe my eyes, a few too many me thinks...
Surely its the COMPLETE opposite, and anyway, United made 6 changes against Chelsea, so what the...! I seriosuly can't believe what he's sayin. What about last season, when he rested players before the CL final, in a relegation battle game. Ridiculous! The Spanish Waiter is a loser, like the rest of those scouse muppets!

So he says that playing a first team doesn't tire the players? If anything, Barce and 'pile had the advantage squad wise!

What absolute rubbish from the one with the goatee!

I believed it at first too, but then thought it would be absolutely crazy.

Mind you, it does sound like something Benitez would say. Great work K4t! ;)

Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez has blasted Chelsea and Manchester United for not resting players ahead of their second leg Champions League semi-finals.

He blasted us for resting players at Xmas

The Spaniard is furious that both clubs played their first teams in the encounter at Stamford Bridge.

“It’s unfair”

He blasted United for playing under strength teams in Cups

“Both Barcelona and ourselves rested players but Manchester United and Chelsea play their first team”

Naturally

“It’s an unfair advantage and allows those teams to become, how do you say? Battle-hardened?”

“If I knew they were going to play full teams then I would have played full team too. I spoke to Frank (Rijkaard) and he is unhappy about it as well”

Benitez is now insisting the FA and UEFA look into the situation.

Unfortunately I cannot comment on that idiotic statement - against the rules

“Macherano received a long ban for talking to the referee and now Manchester United and Chelsea play full team and no bans for them”

Talking!! TALKING!!

“It’s important that this is investigated”

No it isn't!

Steven Gerrard echoed his manager’s sentiments by insisting that teams who are still in the league have an unfair advantage.

“They can afford to play the same team as their league games count for something”.

Yes, it terrible we have to play the same games as Liverpool

Spokesman from both United and Chelsea refused to comment.
Refused to comment? Hardly surprising isn't it?


Can't they get it through their thick idiotic heads that WE are BETTER than them????

IF this is a joke, its a bloody silly one
