Former Liverpool and Chelsea England midfielder Joe Cole has questioned the position of Everton manager Rafa Benitez after their 4-1 loss to Liverpool in Goodinson Park. Everton fans who showed their ire towards the players during Sunday’s defeat at Brentford were seen leaving the stadium after just 20 minutes of the derby, therefore missing Demarai Gray’s strike in the 38th minute.
Joe Cole Worried About Raphael Benitez after Liverpool Thrashing
Following the game result, Joe Cole said: “I feel Rafael Benitez at Everton doesn’t sit right.” The player believes that Everton is not where it is supposed to be. He said: “They have hit a bump in the road, and for fans to be leaving after 20 mins show for me, whoever made that decision to bring him in, it is a bad one.”
The former Aston Villa player commented on the coach: “Rafa is such a legend at Liverpool. I feel for the fans because of the money that has been spent on this club over the last ten years. They should be in a better position than they are.” “Players and managers over the years have to take responsibility, but equally the recruitment has not been good enough. “This looks like the gap between Liverpool and Everton is huge.”
