Perhaps this is the best way to describe how Liverpool fans could soon be feeling if a certain Rafa Benitez comes good on his interest in the Everton job and signs on the dotted line.

To strike out at a manager of Benitez's pedigree and immediately dismiss him because of historic Liverpool links? Now that's bold.

Silverware has been collected at each of the top European clubs Benitez has managed since establishing himself as a top level coach in 2001 with Valencia - bar an ill-fated stint as Real Madrid manager.

The image of Benitez will forever cause many an Evertonian to froth at the mouth in recollection of his 'small club' jibe, following a goalless draw in 2007.

Benitez demands only a few things when he takes over at a football club in order to really commit every fibre of his being; player commitment, supporter patience and boardroom backing.

Don't forget Benitez was the man who refused to pay big money for striker Joelinton, despite Steve Bruce signing off on a £40m club record purchase months later.

Where has it got them? Just to observe last five Premier League seasons; 10th, 12th, 8th, 8th and 7th.It is such a sense of misplaced pride that Everton fans now feel Benitez - a man who has taken charge of the likes of Madrid, Inter, Liverpool and Napoli - is not fit for the position.
