Rafa Benítez Promises to Fight For Everton Despite Fans' Reaction

Rafa Benítez, Everton’s new coach and former Liverpool manager, hopes to forge a winning mentality at the Goodison Park club and to convince the fans that he is the right man for the job, despite already facing criticism for his appointment in the last weeks.

Benítez was hired by Everton in June for the next three seasons, but the decision was not received well given Benítez’s illustrious past with Liverpool, that he managed from 2004 to 2010 and won the 2004 Champions League among other trophies.

Merseyside Police also investigated a banner against Benitez, near his family house in Wirral, prior to his appointment, but the 61-year-old said he had been welcomed back to the city by both Liverpool football sides: Liverpool red. and Everton blue.

Benitez angered Everton fans in 2007 when he called them a “small club” while managing Liverpool. When asked about those comments, he replied: “It depends on the context. It was a long time ago and I was fighting for my club.” “That is what I am doing now. I will fight for Everton in every game and compete against anyone. I am glad that this club is getting bigger and bigger ”.

Benitez said that he plans to be ambitious in the transfer market, but he knows that the results on the field will decide how he is received at Goodison Park.
