& # 39; The [the injury] has never been & # 39; been great, but it was always enough to get it out. I imagine that's frustrating.

& # 39; The feeling was that Jose Mourinho could not be a Liverpool manager because of the way he behaved & # 39 ;: Jamie Carragher reveals why Rafa Benitez was preferred over his coaching rival at Anfield in 2004
- ] Liverpool and Chelsea were looking for a coach in the summer of 2004
- Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has now expressed his reasons why
- Carragher says Mourinho didn't fit in & # 39; the Liverpool way of doing things & # 39; 39;
The Reds chose Rafa Benitez while the Blues for Jose Mourinho
Although Mourinho's name was mentioned after the looting of Gerard Houlier at Anfield, former Reds center-back Carragher gave his reasons for favoring Benitez that summer.
& # 39; Gerard Houllier had lost his jo b, and Rick Parry (general manager) had interviewed Rafa Benitez at some point, & # 39; told Carragher [19459036SkySports'footballpodcast.
& # 39; He just kept the senior players informed about what they were doing, and he mentioned Jose Mourinho.
& # 39; I think even that crossed the line, even though it was great, at Old Trafford, the feeling at the club and maybe some players was that it wasn't really Liverpool's way of doing things. & # 39; moved to Liverpool & # 39; s rivals Chelsea.
He won two Premier League titles at Stamford Bridge, as well as two League Cups and an FA Cup, but never won in Europe.
Benitez struggled domestically during are six years with Anfield, but famously won the Champions League in 2005.
Carragher continued: "I think the feeling was that Jose Mourinho couldn't be a Liverpool manager, possibly because of the way he sometimes behaved
" So I always thought we would go for Rafa because he would be more distant. "
It's the debate that seemed to have been resolved a few years ago – is the modern fullback really a defender, or is it he closer to a winger?
Liverpool have earned critical acclaim for years among Jurgen Klopp for how their defenders are driving the field, not least Trent Alexander-Arnold. The 21-year-old has emerged as a brilliant assist provider and can cross the ball in his prime just like David Beckham .
Apparently, the days of broad defenders were just clogs. The conversation seemed over. Everyone greets the flying fullback.
And yet a new point is being made in the discussion in another part of the northwest.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka, like Alexander-Arnold, is part of an abundance of talented right backs that have sprung up in England in recent years.
He made his breakthrough at Crystal Palace under Roy Hodgson, looked solid after his years and earned a £ 50 million move to Manchester United over the summer.
Unlike Alexander-Arnold, however, his game is about def nding. Over the weekend, Rio Ferdinand said, & # 39; If you formed them two players together, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Trent Alexander-Arnold, you have the best player.
& # 39; Aaron Wan-Bissaka one-on-one, I've seen [Raheem] Sterling play against him and Sterling kidneys everyone, he finds it hard against Wan-Bissaka.
& # 39; One on one he will physically suit you, he will run with you, he will slide on the floor if you get away from him a bit more and he has to go overdrive.
& # 39; He can cover people, incredible. He could play the right side of a back three at Man United if they wanted to, I think he would be great there. & # 39;
Bissaka is less impressive compared to Alexander-Arnold as he continues
