Another one bites the dust. Just a few months after insisting Branislav Ivanovic be miserable at his suspension from the Champions League final, Geoff Shreeves was at his blunt interviewing best again yesterday – providing Rafa Benitez with relentless confirmation of his sour reception at Stamford Bridge.
When upwards of 40,000 people boo you the instant you are introduced, there is every chance you may just put two and two together. Thankfully Shreeves was on hand to make 100% certain than Benitez calculated four. Skipping any notable interest in the game against Manchester City itself, the microphone wielding Grim Reaper said:
“Even if you didn’t hear it, I can tell you – the entire Chelsea crowd booed you and they were singing ‘we don’t want you here.’ ”
Benitez just about clung on to a smile Cliffhanger style, despite Shreeves’s restless bid to break his fragile grip.
Perish the thought of him one day grilling his grandchildren about the loss of their favourite pet dog.
