The Spaniard was sacked by Everton six months after arriving at the club, regretting the lack of time: “In today’s football we are looking for immediate results.”
With a successful past at Liverpool, the great rival, Rafa Benitez knew from the start that life wasn’t going to be easy at Everton. The worst was confirmed. Six months later he was fired, which also proves that it is increasingly difficult to ensure some stability in the profession.
Hours after the class was completed, the Spanish coach responded through his personal website, speaking for himself, but also for an entire class, increasingly hostage to immediacy.
“The road to success is not easy and unfortunately in today’s football we are looking for immediate results and there is less and less patience,” wrote Rafa Benitez, who left Everton after seven wins, five draws and 10 defeats.
“We knew it wasn’t going to be easy, and that it was a huge challenge, both emotionally and athletically. My love for this city, for Merseyside and its residents, made me accept it, but only when you are in the country that you understand the scale of the task. From day one, my art team and I have been working as usual. We had to not only achieve results, but also win people’s hearts. However, the situation and then the injuries that occurred made things even more difficult,” defended Benitez, the newest coach on the list of the unemployed.
