Jahá, einsog við vorum búin að heimta hér á síðunni, þá var [Rafa kjörinn þjálfari mánaðarins í ensku úrvalsdeildinni](http://icliverpool.icnetwork.co.uk/0500liverpoolfc/0100news/tm_objectid=16465562%26method=full%26siteid=50061%26headline=manager%2dof%2dthe%2dmonth%2djoy%2dfor%2dbenitez-name_page.html).
Að sögn Echo, þá vann Rafael Benitez þennan heiður með nokkrum yfirburðum. Liverpool unnu auðvitað alla leikina í nóvember.
Tilkynnt verður um leikmann nóvember mánaðar seinna í dag og þar koma Steven Gerrard, og varnarþrennan okkar: Pepe, Sami og Carra sterklega til greina.
Á myndinni útskýrir Rafa muninn á sér og öðrum þjálfurum í deildinni.
Annars, þá talar Rafa um hugsanleg leikmannakaup og [hvernig leikmenn hann vilji sjá hjá Liverpool](http://icliverpool.icnetwork.co.uk/0500liverpoolfc/0100news/tm_objectid=16465573%26method=full%26siteid=50061%26page=2%26headline=the%2dend%2dof%2dthe%2dbeginning-name_page.html):
>”The players we need may not be the most expensive in the world. I’m looking for specific types of player,” he explained.
>”I like good professionals, not what some people call ‘star’ players. My idea of a star player may be different to others. When I tell Steven Gerrard I need him to play on the right, and he does this to the best of his ability, that defines him as a star player in my eyes.
>”I don’t like players who only play for themselves. They are selfish. It’s those who understand the needs of the team who are the best.
>”It’s not my idea of a successful team to have one individual as top goalscorer in the league, winning lots of personal awards as his team finishes fifth. There’s no point being the best in a bad team. You want to be the best in a good team and collect trophies.”
Jammmm, vel mælt.
