This season many aspects of our club have come under scrutiny, from the players all the way up to the boardroom questions have been asked by loyal supporters wondering what’s going wrong. No one has faced as much criticism as manger Rafael Benitez. Whilst this is expected personal abuse is one step too far.
Names like ‘fat Spanish waiter’ were formerly confined to un-amusing chants from opposition supporters, now they seem to be used by elements of our own fanbase, something which is simply not acceptable in any way, shape or form.
This football clubs supporters have a proud history of backing the manager through thick and thin, some may not like the tactics and may criticize them, but one thing our support never did was abuse the manger. whether they liked them or not.
Think what you may of Rafa’s tactics, his decisions and his spending on players but one thing this man has in abundance is a love for this club, its fans and the city which it’s based in. Regardless of whether you thing Rafael Benitez is doing a good job or not one thing that cannot be disputed is his passion for all things Liverpool Football Club and it hurts to see our own fans calling him all the names under the sun and giving him verbal abuse. It’s just not the Liverpool way.
Feel free to complain about his tactics, everyone has a right to do that, just never go down that slippery road of personal abuse, it’s not big, it’s not clever and it’s not the Liverpool way to attack someone who loves this club as much as anyone before him ever has.
