Benitez to get a medal should Liverpool win the league

Once a red, always a red? Benitez showed his redness, as he defied all odds – guiding his struggling Newcastle side to a 2-1 victory over Manchester City yesterday night.

The Man Blue are Liverpool’s greatest threat to winning a first Premier League title for the first time since the 1989-90 season, but Benitez, who left Anfield going to 10 years now, gave his former side a major boost in the title race – performing some abracadabra to ensure his side defeated high flyers, City at St James Park

Benitez was already a legend when he left Liverpool in 2010 – 5 years earlier, he had won the Champions League with the Reds in the most unusual way –  with Liverpool coming from three goals down to defeat AC Milan on penalty.

He added the FA Cup to the Liverpool’s trophy collection in 2006 and got the club to the Champions League final in 2007, this time losing to the side they mysteriously conquered in 2005.

The Spaniard never came close to winning the league during his six years at Anfield, and post his era, the closest for the 18-time league winners was in 2013.

But what Benitez could not do as a coach for Liverpool, he is now clearing the path for another coach {Jurgen Klopp} to do – With a win over Leicester City tonight, Liverpool could extend their lead over City to seven points.

A source close to Liverpool told spotkick, “Rafa might be given a medal should we win the league.”

He revealed further, “Rafa is one of us. Liverpool could even sack Klopp for him to come for his second spell. The love the club is now having for him after Newcastle defeated City is becoming unhealthy.”

Will Benitez be immortalised? Hopefully, Henderson won’t slip. And should he, hopefully, that would be meaningless on the Merseyside’s stride for a first league title in nearly 30 years.

Flag on for offside!!!!! Believe anything read here? At your peril.
