How demanding is Rafa Benítez? Steven Gerrard very famously said it was his career ambition to get a 'well done' from him. Is it like that?
No, he's not hundred percent telling the truth. When the guy speaks everyone listen. He is not just a great coach and a great manager, he's also a massive presence. And you know, it's easy to talk to him as well, his door is always open. He gets involved with the lads, he has a bit of banter but, when we are on the training pitch he´s serious, you know if the players aren't doing a job then he's not afraid of drop somebody and tell them as well. So he's got a good balance and also is been showed in the past with what he's done and what is won.
