Thank you Rafa – Rafel Benitez Maudes

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Best tactical move ever
Whilst Kaka twisted and twirled
Didi took to the field
Six minutes that shook the world

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 That magical night in Turkiye
Milan smacked on the chin
Caution flung out the window
And a magnificent fifth win

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Soon a replay against Milan
In Athens this time slain
There will never be another
Quite like “that night” again

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Ninety nine times the same team
Abruptly diminished the flame
“No century,” the media uproar
No “Rafa Rotates for 100th game”

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Spent two two five million
Recouped hundred and fifty
Seventy Five net for Gicks
But Scrooges remained thrifty

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Smashing United at Old Trafford
Hilarious Upton Park skid
Gerrard final in Cardiff
Anfield trouncing of El Madrid

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Besiktas wipe out eight nil
Record Champions League win
Farewell card from best mate Parry
Hail the king of Zonal marking

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 “Winning trophies has made me put on weight”
Now beckons Moratti’s pull
We bid farewell to the Spaniard
Senor Benitez of Istanbul

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Thank you Rafa

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 Number 7

Interviewer :Everyone is saying George Gillett is coming to watch this game tonight, does that make any difference to you or are you just focused on that 90 minutes tomorrow?
Rafa :I think that he is not available for tomorrow so, he is not a big difference for me in my team selection.
