According to some media outlets a war of words has broken out between Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez and Wigan Athletic owner Dave Whelan, more like a playground spat I`d say.

So what is all the fuss about?

Following the Latics 1-0 win over Benitez` side on Monday Whelan said he felt that Liverpool are in a mess and he points the finger at the fact that the owners are from the USA claiming that they don`t feel what the fans feel

Not too controversial then, in reply Benitez says that he doesn`t want to talk about the Latics and that Whelan should just keep to talking about his own club, again nothing too controversial.

Whelan said to Sky Sports: “Liverpool are in a mess. The owners, being American, I don’t think they feel what we [fans] feel.’

‘The big sympathy I have is for the Liverpool supporters because they are a fantastic lot’

‘I’m really, really sorry for their supporters. We went to Anfield earlier in the season and there was absolutely no atmosphere and no heart at all.

‘The supporters feel that and I think the players are starting to feel it.’


Benitez returned: ‘I do not talk about Wigan. He [Whelan] should talk about his own club.’

Looks like the media are just trying to stir it up with the claims of a war of words.
