Rafa Benitez 'surprised' he wasn't approached for Liverpool job

The former Reds boss admitted he found it strange that he was never offered his old position with the club, despite the success he brought them in previous years.

The story is too old to be commented.

So am I to be honest, but I guess they thought he wouldn't be able to get Liverpool playing the attractive football they're trying to employ now.

The Liverpool managerial search a few months ago was very strange. FSG were keen on finding the right person and they knew very well about Rafa but my guess was that they did not like that Rafa tends to publicly show his frustration against the owners when he was not rightfully given funds (He did this at LFC and Inter).

Another twist on things, the main person advising FSG and the board to appoint Brendan Rodgers was Michael Laudrup, who is now the manager at Swansea.. Weirdness
