Tom Jones look-alike mini-me Rafa Benitiz has told icLiverpool that he can't understand why Martin O’Neill has been so angry over their conversations relating to Villa skipper Gareth Barry.
The Liverpool boss said: 'I think the right approach when you want to sign a player is to talk to the manager. I was talking to Martin O’Neill, I said we would like to sign Gareth Barry and asked what the situation was. He just said he needed to talk to the owner and I said okay. He will not have any problems with his supporters because he never said to me he wanted to sell Barry.'
Oh great, more 'he said, she said' being played out in the press. This really has done neither club any favours has it?
He also says they are talking about Scott Carson, who Villa have an option to sign, adding, 'We were just talking about football so why he was so angry I do not know. I’ve been very clear. The player had said before he wanted to play Champions League football. We knew that and so tried to sign a good player. It’s that simple. If your captain wants to leave, it’s a problem but that’s football.'
