Alan Shearer is of the opinion that Rafa Benitez would not like to give anything to Liverpool with Newcastle United hosting the title-chasing Liverpool in the next month at St. James Park.
They are in the fierce title race of the Premier League along with Manchester City. Liverpool is trailing them with just one point with 3 points remaining. Some of the supporters of Liverpool have suggested that mathematically speaking, Newcastle is safe after their win by 3–1 over Southampton; Benitez might be ready to do a favor to his former club.
Benitez has missed out on a win in the Premier League for Anfield club in the season of 2008–2009 as soon as they had been defeated by Ferguson’s Manchester United. However, he is still in good relation with the fans of Liverpool fans and great affection for the team.
However, he had stressed earlier in this week that he is professional and would like to manage Newcastle to any victorious game that he can, irrespective of who is the opposing team and what is actually at stake.
Nevertheless, the fifty-year-old is aware of the fact that he is going to face criticism from a part of the Liverpool fans in case he spoils their dream for the title. On the other hand, the supporters of Manchester City might accuse him of helping the Red to the trophy and make Newcastle lose. Hence, he believes that it is not possible for him to win on a personal level.
