Rafa Benitez Wins Rant of the Month Award

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 04 March 2013, 13:37

The votes of February's Rant of the Month have been counted and verified and we can exclusively reveal that Rafa Benitez was the clear winner of the sought after award. 80% of Sack Race readers selected the under-fire Spaniard who was unavailable for comment, although rumours are rife that he is outraged on hearing the news that he received more votes than fellow hot-head Arsene Wenger.

Benitez unleashed his fury (see video below) in a press conference last week following Chelsea's 2-0 win away to Middlesbrough in the FA Cup. The former Liverpool boss surprisingly blew his lid at both a section of Chelsea fans and the management in a rip-roarious rant born out of complete and utter frustration. Benitez criticised those supports who continue to slate him on a daily basis and then went on to target the club for handing him the label "interim manager".

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger came a distance second, having accumulated 20% of the vote. The Frenchman was furious at journalists over reporting “false information” and also at questions concerning his side’s shock defeat to Blackburn Rovers a few days earlier. Meanwhile 10% voted for Paolo Di Canio, with Roberto Mancini getting let off lightly with just 1% choosing the Man City manager.
