Description - Rafa by John Williams

In 2004, Rafa Ben tez decamped from success at Valencia CF to become manager of Liverpool, bringing with him a platoon of Spanish players and designs on the club s first league title since 1990. In his first season in England, Ben tez offered both hope and misery to Liverpool supporters. In Europe, the club battled to the final of the Champions League in 2005 and, against all expectations, won. Domestically, though, they faltered. Could he yet turn Liverpool around and learn from his early mistakes? And could Liverpool overcome their own structural and funding problems to deliver a new stadium, new investors and a team to match their supporters ambitions? roove Armada examines the developing connections between the English and Spanish game and focuses on Ben tez s attempt to bring the Premiership title to Anfield. It also uniquely offers a detailed account from Spanish academic Ram n Llopis of Ben tez s rise in the Spanish game, including his terrific work at Valencia. Rafa Ben tez has brought a distinctly Iberian flavour to Liverpool Football Club, and this engrossing book reveals all you need to know about the man, his football philosophy and the new Spanish fury at Anfield.
