Benitez has been eager to set the record straight on his time at Anfield, pointing the finger at former Reds managing director Christian Purslow last month when he memorably said that "white liquid in a bottle has to be milk".
Benitez has now turned on Hodgson, who claimed over the weekend that Dalglish had not been allowed to set foot in the club's training ground during the Spaniard's reign.
"I think that Mr Hodgson, he doesn't understand," Benitez said. "Every single press conference is even worse than the last one.
"He's talking about things that he doesn't know, and some people cannot see a priest on a mountain of sugar.
"Maybe he hasn't been in Liverpool too long. We gave the fans their pride - again. We fought for the fans, we fought for the club and we fought for our players, so maybe he cannot understand this."
