No.

I was watching SSN a while ago, and there was nothing on it about Benitez then.

It'd be interested to hear what he said though.

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has launched an astonishing attack on Sir Alex Ferguson and has accused the Manchester United manager of attempting to start 'early' mind games in the Premier League title race.

Benitez takes his table-topping side to Stoke on Saturday looking to reinforce their position at the summit, but he has been angered by comments from Ferguson.

The Reds could move 10 points clear of third-placed United, who would enjoy the luxury of three games in hand, with victory at the Britannia Stadium but Ferguson has suggested that the Liverpool could choke under the pressure.

Ferguson's observation has caused an outburst from Benitez and the Spaniard has launched criticism of the Old Trafford boss, claiming he is the only manager to avoid punishment in the current Respect campaign.
Tricks

Benitez said: "We had a meeting in Manchester with managers and the Football Association about the respect campaign.

"And I was very clear, forget the campaign because Mr Ferguson was killing the referees, killing Mr (Martin) Atkinson, killing Mr (Keith) Hackett."

Benitez also feels that Ferguson's suggestion that Liverpool can not handle the pressure at the top of the table is only an example of the Scot's infamous psychological tricks.

"I was surprised but I have to talk about facts," added Benitez. "I think that is important. I think they (United) are nervous because we are at the top of the table.

"I want to be clear. I don't want to play mind games too early and I think that they want to start."

More to follow...

"But I have seen some facts. On 1st November, they played Hull and Mr Ferguson had a two-match touchline ban and a £10,000 fine after confronting Mike Dean, the referee, for improper conduct.

"We started the Respect campaign, and that was when (Javier) Mascherano was sent off (last season) at Old Trafford.

"The referee (Steve Bennett) was the referee when they played against Wigan - he could not see the handball against Wigan by Rio Ferdinand, he did not give a penalty. They won the game and they won the title in this game.

"I think it will be the same referee who will be in charge of their game in hand this season (against Wigan).

"During the Respect campaign - and this is a fact - Mr Ferguson was charged by the FA for improper conduct after comments made about Martin Atkinson and Keith Hackett.

"He was not punished. He is the only manager in the league that cannot be punished for these things."

Sorry, but thats a bit rich saying Fergie is the only manager that cannot be punished.

Benitez continually criticises other teams, players, managers and referees but people make excuses for him saying ridiculous things like "It must be the language barrier" etc etc.

Fergie's mind games have worked and Rafa, who hasn't been in the best of health is behaving like a wounded animal.

SUCKER!

Love you, fergie. :)

That was hilarious, he's obviously been obsessing at Fergie, he made a lil document about it. Really doesn't look good on Benitez at all. First sign of a Liverpool break down :D:D:D:D

He pulled out an almost stalkerish list of all Fergusons faults. He's cracking and it shows. Liverpool wont be top by easter.

This is different from Keegan. Keegan was an emotional outburst born out of passion and anger. Benitez' statement was planned and his outburst was quite controlled.

It really is quite astonishing.

Fergie has won already then because Rafa has responded. By responding it has shown that it has hit a raw nerve. United 1 Liverpool 0 :D

Rafa the gaffer is clearly feeling the strain of being at the top and the paranoia is growing .

We need a dodgy goal in our favour and fergie to come on after the game praising the referee for his professionalism .

I think he knows gerrard could be going to the big house smack bang in the middle of two merseyside derbies .

Still gives us something to talk about other than snack food
