The simple way in which Rafa Benitez improves a team and improves the players during a season is that he considers every game to be a learning exercise.
Every game is approached in a way that we can win it, but after the game Ciaran Clark has given some insights as into what Rafa does.
Rafa Benitez in training with his players
Benitez wants the team and the players to keep improving – it’s continuous improvement – something in business that is not uncommon as companies try to continuously improve their products and they put procedures in place to do that.
Rafa is in the business of building good football teams and making the players he has into better players.
Here’s what Ciaran Clark – who had an excellent game for us on Saturday at his former club Aston Villa – said after the game:
“He sees things where we can improve, and he lets us know.” “I think over the next few days we’ll be looking at the game and seeing where we went wrong.”
“We’ll get all the information about that and told how he need to put it right and move forward.”
The manager now needs to prepare the team for the game at home on Wednesday night to top of the league Norwich City – a place we would like to be in the near future.
