Harry Kewell played under Rafa Benitez at Liverpool.

The winger arriving in 2003, a year before the manager, at Anfield and staying until 2008.

Kewell becoming a Champions League winner when starting the final in 2005 against AC Milan.

Now a manager himself, the former player as been talking about his old boss.

Harry Kewell a week ago jumping ship from Crawley Town to take over at Notts County, replacing the sacked Kevin Nolan.

Chatting about the former managed who have influenced him, Kewell particularly picks out Rafa Benitez.

The League Two manager giving a great insight into Rafa’s man-management

Harry Kewell:

“I’ve definitely taken my own style in what I want to see in terms of the football, but I have also taken dribs and drabs from others I’ve played for.

“Rafa Benitez is one for example.

“He was the master of you walking into his office thinking…I know this is what I am going to say…and you’d walk out agreeing to everything he said.

“How does that work?

“I’d gone in there and asked for this, then agreed to do that.

“You’d be like what?

“But I am their boss and it’s my way or the highway.

Rafa Benitez was fantastic, but he’d say do this and I’d say but what about this way, and he’d respond – ‘fantastic but this is what I want you to do.’”
