Napoli manager Rafa Benitez has hailed Arsene Wenger as the best manager in England. Both Napoli and Arsenal face each other later today in the UEFA Champions League, but while the praise for Wenger is worthy, you have to wonder how much of a dig that is for Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho.

    The fat Spanish waiter has spoken.

    All joking aside, Benitez did a great job with Chelsea last year despite the constant attack from Chelsea supporters. He really impressed me. I felt he out-managed SAF in the cup tie and the BPL match at Old Trafford. I guess he has a good reason to keep pointing out the quality of his CV.

  2. Frill Artist says:

    A charming joke from the fat clown.

    This is partly true and partly Go &%% yourself Jose.
