Thanks to In The Stands for noticing this and in turn for bringing it to our attention. The guy in this Paddy Power ad is startlingly similar to under fire Anfield boss Rafa Benitez. The likeness is so great that we here in COS Towers did a double take and watched it all over again.
Now if Rafa does find himself out of a job at Liverpool come the summer perhaps he could opt for a living as an actor? We can see him in Eastenders, perhaps running one of those shops that sells odds and ends that no one really needs. The kind of shop that makes everyone wonder how they manage to make ends meet and keep the shop open.
Of course if Benitez is given the chop and sent packing he will probably find another management job and perhaps even a high profile one and that in a way would be a shame as it would mean that we would never get to see another side to the Spaniards talents, the other side that includes playing a shop keeper on officially the most depressing television programme ever made.
