I see Rafa Benitez claimed referee Lee Mason had a “perfect” game at Fratton Park on Saturday in a rather sarcastic tone after he masterminded Liverpool’s 2-0 defeat to the leagues bottom club, Portsmouth.
During different stages of Saturday’s aftermatch interview he claimed six times that Mason was perfect.
Benitez was clearly trying to use this as a form of criticism of the referee in a way he hopes won’t upset the FA. He also stated that Liverpool were controling the game until they conceded a goal and then the sending off changed the game.
Is that so!
Let me put it another way Rafa, you where not controling the game at all and the sending off didn’t change the game as your team were already getting outplayed before it happened.
This is just your usual pathetic tactic of blaming someone other than yourself for your teams poor showing.
Did Lee Mason play two holding midfielders against the bottom side in the division, leaving one of your best players this season, Yossi Benayoun on the bench for nearly an hour?
No you did Rafa. You will never win the Premier League with your negative attitude and you don’t fool anyone trying to blame the ref. Everyone knows it all his your own fault.
You are lucky in the fact you have the most loyal bunch of fans behind you as you are fast becoming a worse manager for excuses than Gerard Houllier was.
And he was a moaning disgrace as well.
