Liverpool boss Benitez asked about expanding waistline in Romania

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez was asked by Romanian reporters about his expanding waistline yesterday!

Benitez faced a tense Romanian media conference ahead of their Europa League clash with Unirea.

The Daily Mail says with press officer Ian Cotton trying to wind up proceedings, the best was saved until last as the gentleman who brought up the subject of sack-related chants had the final word.

"Mr.Benitez," he said. "The last time I saw you was at the 2005 Champions' League final, and your, erm, silhouette seems to have changed since then. Why is that?"

Breaking out into a grin, Benitez responded: "It is the stress of having to answer so many questions from the press. Thank you and goodnight."
