For an FA Cup quarter-final replay, Chelsea versus Manchester United wasn’t half a boring affair.
We wanted some action and some controversy, so why did Sir Alex Ferguson and Rafael Benitez get on so well? It is not often that either boss keeps calm and collected after that sort of game. They must be going soft.
Benitez enjoys his facts and the scoreline will have pleased him but a touchline bust up would have pleased us even more with the old foes locking horns once again.
While at Liverpool, Benitez loved to wind Ferguson up but that has seemed to disappear now and with the Chelsea ‘interim’ boss looking for a new job in the summer, I wonder how many more times the pair will share the touchline.
Can anyone work out what Sir Alex is about to say to Benitez in the picture below?
