Benitez blasts Gill

Published Add your comment

Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez has made a fresh attack on Manchester United with a swipe at the club's chief executive David Gill.

Benitez made headlines last week with a series of outspoken remarks about his Old Trafford counterpart Sir Alex Ferguson and he has followed that up with further comments about Gill, who also holds a senior position at the Football Association.

Benitez said: "They were saying we are a threat. Now they know we are. They are playing mind games. But I don't think it's a mind game when you have control over everything and your chief executive is powerful in the FA and things like this. Is there a conflict of interest with David Gill at the FA?"

He added: "That is another fact. It is a fact that one person has a lot of power and control, and is on a lot of committees in the FA. To me that is very strange."

Neither the Football Association nor United have commented.
