Everton fans have crossed the line in their campaign against Rafa Benitez, with a threatening banner now emerging outside his family home – reminding the former NUFC boss that ‘we know where you live’.
This comes a week after Blues fans made their feelings clear outside Goodison Park; something that looked set to scupper the Spaniard’s arrival at one stage.
Sky Sports reported over the weekend that Benitez should be confirmed as Toffees boss this week, however the decision has not gone down with the blue half of the city.
Rafa infamously labelled Everton a “small club” while managing Liverpool in 2007 and the deal reportedly almost fell through last week due to fan pressure.
That said, Chairman Farhad Moshiri appears to have stuck by his guns – and a group of Evertonians have reacted in the worst possible way with this sickening message outside his family home:
No matter who you support or what your opinions are about a manager, there is no room for this in football!
Some felt this may be a ‘dream job’ for Benitez in terms of location, the ambition at Everton and money at their disposal, but it’s starting to look like a nightmare. Is it honestly worth the hassle for him and his family?
He deserves better – especially after all the community work he has done on Merseyside.
