Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has resumed the war of words between himself and Manchester Utd boss Alex Ferguson, claiming his counterpart is scared of the Reds’ threat on Utd’s title prospects.
United currently lead the Premier League by one point with a game in hand, but have suffered questionable form of late whilst Benitez’s men have surged to emphatic and impressive victories of late.
“Sir Alex will be supporting Liverpool in this tie because he knows we are the bigger threat now.
“If Chelsea are not in the competition, then he knows they will then be a threat also in the league. But he will lose anyway, whoever goes out, because they will still be a big threat to United.
“I would like to be worried about both competitions, it means we will continue to be successful.”
