Benitez – We Are Closer To Outgoings Than Two Days Ago – And Working On Incomings

Rafa Benitez has just completed his press conference for the League Cup (Carabao Cup) game tomorrow night at home to Nottingham Forest.

Unlike cup games under other managers, Rafa takes the cup games very seriously, and he will try to put together two long runs in both the League Cup and the FA Cup.

Rafa has said we are closing in on moving some players out than we were two days ago, and we are working hard behind the scenes to bring in new players.

Here are some initial comments that Rafa has made in his press conference this afternoon:

“The players know we have to keep working hard and improve, and they are quite confident that we can do that soon.”

“In this case, we have a cup competition we will try to do well in. We have to use the squad, and try to progress.”

“I think Nottingham Forest will do well this year, but hopefully not tomorrow! They will pass, press and be very organized too”

“We will see new players come in tomorrow because we must use the squad”  “Winning games changes everything.”

“We knew in the Championship we needed Championship players now we need to move players. We are working on that.”

“We are closer to outgoings than 2 days ago, but still I am not sure how close. We are working on incomings behind the scenes”

    No one said that Rafa was the core of the negatively, all what was said is that he has contributed to it, as I said on an earlier post, some people do like to twist words and posts around so they mean something totally different to what was actually said. Hmmmm
