Benitez slams Liverpool hierarchy
Former manager Rafael Benitez has hit out at the Liverpool hierarchy, claiming they "understand nothing about football".
The Spaniard, who left in the summer for Inter Milan, spent his last two seasons at Anfield dealing with in-fighting and internal politics.
His relationship with American owners Tom Gicks and George Gillett was always strained throughout and he has now criticised them and other high-ranking officials for their lack of knowledge about the sport.
Asked about his relationship with Inter president Massimo Moratti he told the club's website inter.it: "It's good. He is a man who knows football.
"He might get angry when the team doesn't win and this is normal, but at least you can talk about football with him.
"In my last year at Liverpool I had (club) executives who understood nothing about football and you couldn't talk to them about football.
"You can with Moratti."
