Rafa Benitez hits out at Roy Hodgson with bizarre ‘priest on a mountain of sugar’ rant
Inter Milan boss Rafa Benitez has taken another swipe at the man who took his old job. The Spaniard has compared Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson to ‘a priest on a mountain of sugar’.
“I think that Mr Hodgson, he doesn’t understand. Every single press conference is even worse than the last one. He’s talking about things that he doesn’t know, and some people cannot see a priest on a mountain of sugar.”
Benitez was responding to perceived criticism from Hodgson, who claimed Benitez once banned Anfield legend Kenny Dalglish from the club’s Melwood training ground and had left a below-par squad behind.
Apparently the phrase means that the truth is staring Hodgson in the face, just like the black robes against the white sugar. But we welcome your theories, OTP readers!
