I thought I'd win the ONTD Football public over with hard hitting 'facts'.
Fabregas and the real-barca war.
- Real Madrid and Barcelona are setting up for what is potentially a £60m bidding war. (same old same old) However, Wenger wants to hold on to his little pretty, so, a little man drama may ensue.
- Chelsea have targeted Valencia’s David Villa and Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos. Considering how January would be the only opportunity in a while for Chelsea, it seems quite probable that a transfer might happen.
RAFA BENITEZ: Sell Torres and I’ll quit Liverpool.
- When asked if an offer of £100m (blaardy hell) for the forward would tempt Liverpool bosses, Rafa offers an assuring, “It wont happen. I’d quit.” Albeit the debt stands at £245 million, Rafa laughs off at the thought of selling Torres, “I’m confident it will never happen.”
He also addresses the Alonso transfer and whether it was made in times of bad blood. “He put in a transfer request. We had a professional and good relationship. Some people say the manager must put his arm around the player’s shoulder. I don’t know too many managers who do this. Some managers here in England don’t even see the training sessions. How can you put your arm around the shoulders of the players if you are not there?"
Despite the recent losing streak, Benitez is adamant that he will leave an indentation in Liverpool‘s history. “There is a massive difference between five years ago and now.. I want to leave a winning legacy.” Benitez very obviously has faith in his team and in himself. Question is, do you have faith in him?
