Post your comment about Rafael Benitez
 [Roberto] Mancini won here, then Mourinho and now me. I hope to win more than them. Already this season we can win six trophies. We have won our first trophy of the year, but that was won by the group of players, not the coach. The rivalry with Mourinho is a professional one. I used to have excellent relations with him, but that changed when we [Liverpool] eliminated them [Chelsea] in the Champions League.
