Does Benitez deserve our respect?

Liverpool defender John Arne Riise angrily pointed an accusatory finger at those that don’t treat his gaffer – Rafa Benitez – with the respect he deserves. Riise said:

“We don’t know what the owners are thinking but, remember, Benitez has given this club many trophies.

“He deserves to be treated with more respect. It’s a shame he’s gone through this.”

Riise was talking about the Spaniard’s American paymasters, and if players like Riise can openly say things like this, what on earth are they saying in private?
