Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has avoided journalists urging him to congratulate Manchester Utd boss Alex Ferguson on winning the Premier League title.
Benitez and Ferguson have been locked in a war of words all season, playing mind games and psyching each other out.
“I prefer just to say well done to the club, a big club, a good club,” Benitez told reporters after Liverpool’s 2-0 victory at West Brom yesterday.
“Normally you have to be polite and respect the other manager but during the season we have seen a lot of things that I didn’t like, so that’s it.
“I say congratulations to United because they have won. And that’s it.”
