Manchester United defender, and boyhood Liverpool fan, Rio Ferdinand has claimed that Rafael Benitez lost the mind-games of recent weeks with his manager, Alex Ferguson.

The England international claimed that the man labelled “disturbed” by Ferguson lost the battle of wits and the proof is in the recent run of draws of the Anfield side.

“Benitez fell into the hole. That’s something big in football, the psychology.” Ferdinand said.

Whether the battle was won or lost will not be decided until May when the Premiership season is over, but the signs of Benitez winning the psychological war are not good so far after his Reds team gave up top spot to United.
