Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to slam Tim Sherwood, after the former Tottenham and Aston Villa manager claimed that Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez won’t want to see his former side win the Premier League title.

Sherwood was discussing the Reds’ trip to St James’ Park next week, where Benitez, who almost led Liverpool to the title in 2009, could put a serious dent in his former employers’ title aspirations by grabbing a result.

Chelsea fans were giving it large at Anfield on Sunday. Watch their afternoon get slowly ruined in the video below…

Speaking about the fixture, Sherwood said as quoted by The Express: “Contrary to what people might believe, Rafa Benitez does not want Liverpool to win the league.

“I don’t think he will. As much as the Liverpool fans will believe that Rafa will be a Liverpool fan, he won’t want to be the manager who never won the league and let Jurgen Klopp win it.”

Benitez is held in high regard by the Anfield faithful after guiding them to the last of their five European Cup successes with the famous night in Istanbul back in 2005, and he has always spoken fondly of the club whenever the opportunity has arisen.

As a result, the Reds supporters on Twitter haven’t taken kindly to Sherwood’s suggestion that he will want to see them fail, as seen by their angry responses to his comments…
