Many Everton fans have been left buzzing over some comments made by Rafa Benitez ahead of their game away at Aston Villa in the Premier League.
When asked about his unbeaten start to the season in his pre-game press conference ahead of the match on Saturday evening, the former Liverpool and Newcastle United manager said: “I will not say perfect, because we drew against Leeds.”
Should Everton have hired Benitez?
Benitez clearly still has a winning mentality which he has demonstrated on a number of occasions over the course of his managerial career, winning many accolades in his time.
Given that Leeds United finished just above them in the top-flight table last term, it also shows that he wants his team to improve bit by bit, which has been appreciated immensely by the Goodison Park faithful as they look to take all three points away from Villa Park.
