Former Liverpool star Fabio Aurelio has shared how the dressing room reacted to Rafa Benitez's infamous 'facts' rant back in 2009.

Benitez went on a emotional rant during a press conference in the 2008/09 season amid a fiery title race with rivals Manchester United.

Aurelio has now revealed the team's response to the rant and how it boosted the team moving forward, despite United eventually pipping Liverpool to the title at the end of the season.

Benitez spoke for around four minutes, listing off all the problems he had with Ferguson and the 'favouritism' he saw towards United, repeating the word 'facts' a number of times.

This wasn't the first time the Scot had gotten under the skin of a fellow manager, as Kevin Keegan had a similar 'I will love it' outburst following comments made by Ferguson back in 1996.

The Reds were top of the table at the time and the Spaniard was responding to comments made by then-United manager Sir Alex Ferguson regarding the fixture list.
