Benitez reopened hostilities with Fergie yesterday by naming Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger as the best manager in English football.
He said: “There are a lot of good managers in the world who have won many trophies.
“When I came to England I knew Arsene Wenger was the best manager who had been here for a while.
“But I can’t talk about these things every day.
“I have to concentrate on my team and a very important game against Manchester City on Sunday.”
