Rafa Benitez gets his own statue in Naples – Liverpool and Chelsea must wait

by | 10th, October 2013

WHEN Rafa Benitez left Liverpool, the club lost a great manager. But they never did build a statue to his name. Rafa was one of the things that made Liverpool great; they should have made a statue of him in the Tate. At Chelsea, Rafa did well. No statue, of course, but many appreciative Blues’ fans did tell him to get stuffed and offer to mount his head on a spike at Stamford Bridge. And then to Naples: a very slightly unsettling full 1:1 life-size terracotta figurine of Napoli manager Rafa Benitez, complete with ultra realistic signature paunch has ben spotted in the arcades.

No, no tray. He’s no dumb waiter:
