Liverpool's Benitez rules out mind games with Chelsea's Ancelotti

Posted By: Staff

London, Oct 3(ANI): Ahead of the Liverpool-Chelsea Premier League game on Sunday, Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez has said that he has a lot of respect for fellow coach and managers.

"I have a lot of respect for him. I had a good relationship with Avram Grant, Scolari and even Mourinho in the beginning, but then of course we started winning things," The Sun quoted Benitez, as saying.

Benitez further praised Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti and said: "Ancelotti's a different kind of person to them. He's still very competitive though, so we will compete against each other with respect - that's the main thing for me. He's not the sort of person who uses mind games."

He also admitted that he dreams of a third Champions League final battle with Ancelotti.It will be good to see him again and hopefully in another final too. I'd like to see Chelsea in the final of the Champions League, as long as we are the ones playing them," Benitez added. (ANI)
