“Rafa” has one of the most illustrious and successful careers in football management. Renowned for being a world-class strategist he was a product of the famed Real Madrid youth academy. His professional playing career was cut short by injury, enabling a move swiftly into management. He managed Real Madrid U 19 where he found his winning ways almost immediately and eventually became assistant first team coach under Vicente Del Bosque. After finding success at Extremadura and Tenerife, Rafa assumed the role of Head Coach at Valencia. In his first season, he guided the club to their first La Liga title in thirty-one years. In 2003, Valencia repeated their La Liga success and that same season lifted the UEFA Cup.
Wanting a new challenge and seeking success in the Premier League, Benitez accepted the role of manager at Liverpool FC where, in 2005, he led the club to a UEFA Champions League victory in one of football’s most memorable tournament finals; in doing so, Benitez became only the third manager in history (after Bob Paisley and José Mourinho) to win the UEFA Cup and UEFA Champions League in successive seasons. The following season Liverpool built on their champion’s league success by winning the FA Cup, the UEFA Super Cup and, the FA Community Shield. “Rafa” also won second place in the race for the Premier league title with 86 points in 2009, an historical record for the club. “Rafa” left Liverpool in 2010 and took the role of Head Coach at Inter Milan. Benitez won his first trophy as manager of the club when the side defeated AS Roma 3-1 for the Italian Super Cup; later that year Inter won the FIFA Club World Cup.
