Referee was influenced, says director of Liverpool
Kingdom of Valencia denies cheating to win penalty

Rafa Benitez likes of Sir Alex Ferguson, said tonight in the Liverpool manager, in response to another damaging setback for the aspirations of his team qualify for the Champions League, showing more anger toward the man who has become his nemesis in English football.

Benitez was hurt by the penalty set Manchester United on the way to a 2-1 victory, accusing the diving Antonio Valencia, and referred to his earlier accusations that referees Ferguson under pressure. "We know that the influence of Sir Alex at all," he said. "I saw three replicates [from different angles] and the last one was suspicious. See repeated and how he fell. He was asked if he was saying that was a jump, he replied: "Yes, I think so. There is no contact, but the way they fell - strange."

Television footage showed the first contact of Javier Mascherano had been outside the penalty area and Benitez was asked if Ferguson had been trying to get into the mind of the referee, Howard Webb, spoke Friday, when the Anfield club for treatment preferences. "Only on Friday, said something?" was interrupted by a voice full of sarcasm. "What the Friday? This Friday and every Friday? Or every Friday of the year?"

Ferguson had written in his program notes that it was "a touch of sympathy" for the current situation of Benitez, but the feeling of enmity between the two managers led to a confrontation in the band shortly after Wayne Rooney scored his 33rd session of the season, turning in the recovery after Pepe Reina had saved his penalty.

Rooney, little concerned about a left knee injury Old Trafford with a pronounced limp. His header disallowed goal in the fifth minute Fernando Torres for Liverpool, with Park Ji-sung, of scoring the goal in the second half. "When you have different points of view they have of expressing different opinions," Benitez said of this argument. "As you know, he [Ferguson] has his own opinion about everything."

Ferguson's argument is that Mascherano should have been expelled. "I thought the penalty was a red card," he said. "There was no way [Jamie] Carragher could be transmitted to stop the firing of Valencia, absolutely no way. He [Valencia] is too fast for Carragher to cross. It's a shame, but the law of the game is that if you leave a player on a scoring opportunity which is a red card, but not today. "

The Manchester United manager did not know at the time that Benitez had spoken of Valencia, being creative in its fall. "He [Mascherano] pulled him and obviously I think the referee was right," said Ferguson. "It has the advantage of playing [after first contact] because it was right across goal and it was not until I was inside the box that brought him down. So I think that is correct."

Benitez, however, was infuriated by what he perceived as several crucial decisions, will favor U.S. and said he was interested enough in the meantime to tell Torres to maintain their focus on the game. It was not "easy" Torres, the director reflected, and there was no irony when Gary Neville watched tacos had been connected with Maxi Rodriguez, leaving the Argentine with a bloodied head. "I think it must have been a bird from the sky," he said.

Park needs one point for a facial cut, caused by the boot of Glen Johnson. "A game like that, always been a fighter," Ferguson said. "Both teams, with their pride and history, have to compete. I do not think it got to a serious point at any time.

While Liverpool are consumed in the sixth, 18 points behind United at the top of the table, Ferguson's men have their sights on a fourth straight title, two points ahead of Arsenal and four ahead of Chelsea and have additional motivation to reach their Merseyside rivals with a championship, 19 in total.

"We've been very consistent over the past two or three months," said Ferguson. "For the periods of the game we played very well and other times we had to dig and focus." S is always difficult to lose a goal and come back and win is a great quality that Manchester United and is that quality that won us the game again today. "
