Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has told his Manchester United counterpart Sir Alex Ferguson not to bother with mind games because he can’t understand his Scottish accent anyway. Benitez – renowned for his newsreader Queen’s English – told Fergie he would not be affected by his psychological warfare since most of it goes above his head.
He said: “Mind games are for managers who are affected by mind games, but I don’t understand him – because he talks in a Scottish accent.”
I wonder if I could use the same argument to convince Andy Gray to remain mute throughout Sky commentaries?
