Former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez stands by his "fact" rant against Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

In 2009, Benitez launched a prepared tirade against Ferguson which has now become part of Premier League folklore.

"I was analysing the facts, I was not angry, I was not shouting," he said.

"I was trying to put some points across because people, they don't say what they see."

Asked whether he would do the same again, he added: "Yes, 100%. I had more points but I couldn't use them in just one press conference."
