Phoenix Nights actor to bring Rafa Benitez to the big screen
But not the one you expected
Liverpool’s dramatic 2005 Champions League victory is the subject of a new short film. Fifteen Minutes That Shook The World will take a comic look at the Reds’ famous comeback against AC Milan in Istanbul. Steven Gerrard (assuming he is not behind bars), Jamie Carragher and Dietmar Hamman are among the genuine players to have signed up for mickey-taking cameo roles.
The role of Rafa Benitez will be taken by Neil Fitzmaurice (above, left). He is most famous for playing dodgy DJ Ray Von in the sitcom Phoenix Nights. Surely co-star and co-writer Peter Kay would have been a better bet?
