Liverpool fans have been raving about former Reds manager Rafa Benitez and ex-vice captain Jamie Carragher on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football.
The former Real Madrid and Newcastle United manager joined Carragher, who is a regular pundit for the broadcaster, to discuss West Ham United’s home tie against Arsenal.
Should Liverpool extend James Milner's contract?
Many topics were discussed, including his links to be the next manager at the north London club. However, fans took a particular interest in that famous night in Istanbul.
Benitez was in charge of the Reds when his side came back from 3-0 down to beat AC Milan on penalties and win the Champions League.

Brilliant watching. How we won that game will never successfully be analyzed, even by those who were in charge of it and playing it.

Absolutely one of football’s most memorable!
Everyone, club fan or not, witnessed history, desire, determination and of course, the will to overcome and conquer!

Forgotten how good that Milan team was, how the hell did we pull that one out of the bag? Really enjoyed that interview with Rafa
