Benitez exclusive!

Sky Bet

Rafael Benitez may have left English football, but his legacy will forever be remembered at Liverpool.

And in a brand new, revealing interview with Sky Sports' Guillem Balague the former Reds boss speaks openly about the highs and lows of his time at Anfield.

The never-seen-before chat, which is exclusive to skysports.com, sees the former Liverpool manager open up about some of the key moments of his six years in one of the biggest jobs in English football.

The first part of the interview includes:

RANT REFLECTIONS - He discusses his infamous press conference and explains why many of the points raised in 'Rafa's rant' are still valid.

GLORY IN ISTANBUL - He reveals what really happened in the Liverpool dressing room when they were 3-0 down to AC Milan in the Champions League Final.

LOOK HOU'S TALKING - He refutes the suggestion that Liverpool's Champions League success was largely down to previous manager Gerard Houllier.

THE NEARLY MEN - He discusses the men he narrowly missed out on signing for Liverpool, including Florent Malouda and Dani Alves.

TRANSFER TALK - He defends his transfer policy at Liverpool and talks in depth about the sale of Xabi Alonso.

Check back later in the week for the second part of the interview when he discusses why things went wrong for the Reds last season, plus why he is dreaming of returning to the Premier League again.
