Rafael Benitez has had a dig at Roy Hodgson. Hodgson had a couple of pops at his predecessor this week claiming his squad was riddled with Benitez's expensive flops and that the Spaniard had frozen out Kenny Dalglish. Benitez has now responded in kind. "I think that Mr Hodgson, he doesn't understand. Every single press conference is even worse than the last one. He's talking about things that he doesn't know. And some people cannot see a priest on a mountain of sugar," said our former boss. "Maybe he hasn't been in Liverpool too long. We gave the fans their pride - again. We fought for the fans, we fought for the club and we fought for our players. So maybe he cannot understand this. "With £10m net spending, I left that squad with £300m value, 13 internationals. "So, instead of talking about flips and flops, he has to concentrate on his job, try to do his best and not talk about the level of his players or the new players. "Concentrate, try to do your best because it will be the best for the club and it will be the best for the fans. "I brought back Kenny Dalglish to do a role in the club and Christian Purslow gave him another role."
