  1. Torres is not the same since rafa left? how does that make any sense? and the deal for Yossi was done while Benitez was still in charge!

  2. Antoine. Yossi’s deal was cooked up BEFORE Rafa left. The annoncement was made after the Spanish Manager left because the latter’s departure was unexpected.
    I don’t agree with you about Torres either! Torres is still recovering from his op and a bad season. It has nothing to do with Rafa being or not being there.

  3. “Torres is not the same player since Rafa left”

    I think you mean “since he had his operation”. He’s playing for the Spanish national team, Rafa doesn’t even come into it.

    You can’t claim that Torres will only play that well with Rafa. If that was true, wouldn’t Torres be begging for a move to Inter? He was in the Euro 2008 Team of the Tournament and scored the winning goal when he was being managed by Aragones, not Rafa.

  4. Antione thats absolute rubbish. So your saying the coaches he had at atletico madrid didnt get as much out of him as rafa did, including aragones?? Torres and benitez were not best of pals, we have a more chance in keeping torres now than when rafa was still at the club. what makes you say rafa is the only manager who will ever get the best out of him?? playing him constantly on his own up front??

  5. Nope, your wrong. 91 goals for atletico, 72 for Liverpoo, granted he has played more for Atletico. But what you say about Rafa benitez being the only manager who can get the best out of fernando torres is ridiculous. If anyone gets the best out of Fernando Torres, its Steven Gerrard, and his talent has nothing to do whats so ever with Rafa Benitez.

  6. what’s wrong with people who keep blaming rafa if things are bad and credit to others when it was all rafa doing? yossi-rafa slated, milan jovanovic-great job by the board..must be hicks n gillet cybertroopers at work.

  7. That Yossi story is bollocks. Compare the interview he gave after he left. He said that he had known that the home game against Chelsea would be his last home game for us.

    Now read the ESPN piece. Yossi says he was told just before the Hull game he could find a new club.
