After the defeat, in Yokohoma City, against Corinthians in the FIFA World Club Cup, Rafa Benitez now has the unenviable task of lifting the sides` spirits for the vital Capital One Cup clash with Leeds on Wednesday evening.

But, following the narrow defeat, Rafa had a few words to say about the loss, commenting to the media hacks,

“They were very physical from the first minute, every challenge and second ball.”

“It was harder once they scored; they were keeping the ball and passing it.”

“But we had four very clear chances and the goalkeeper was man of the match, and to me that means a lot.”


I think what Rafa is trying to tell us is that Corinthians wanted it more and if you don`t take your chances then you don`t deserve to take anything from the game!
