Honorary scouser Rafa Benitez has made Liverpool fans love him even more with this superb text reply to the man known on the Kop as ‘God’.
Robbie Fowler was in Madrid last weekend to play in the legends fixture between ourselves and Real, the team which Benitez is now manager of since his early summer appointment.
Our legendary striker took the opportunity to wind up his old boss, telling him he was at the Ciudad training ground having a medical, only for Benitez to zing him with a brilliant one-liner!
Robbie: “Rafa, I’m at your new training ground. I’m just having my medical now!”
Rafa: “You don’t need a medical Robbie. You need a miracle!”
Benitez of course famously brought Fowler back to Anfield after a five year absence, and the forward notched 12 goals during his second spell at the club.
Clearly they’re still on terms, but we don’t think that this will help Fowler get a contract with the Spanish giants, sadly!
