I am by no means a Liverpool fan, but if Liverpool did win the EPL this season would this make Rafa Benitez europe's best manager given that he has already managed sides to LaLiga and a CL title?

No.

However he is a good manager.

Why?

I don't believe any other current manager has achieved this feat.

He is nowhere near the best Manager in Europe. I will tell you why, one he had a shed load of cash to win the title for Valencia, I think Paul Ince could have won the league with them that year.

Secondly he has had years to win the league and hasn't done it, hell he hasn't won the league yet this year! So I wouldn't call him the best European manager ever.

I never said he was. Read the question.

He didn't have as much money as Real Madrid or Barcelona when he won LaLiga. And I'll politely remind you he won the CL with Liverpool after spending hardly any money at all.

He inherited a fantastic team all he had to do was guide them to the title, which isn't worthy of being the best manager in Europe.

It isn't as easy as you make out.

LaLiga isn't a Mickey Mouse league, it still takes a lot of winning.

Benitez is a very shrewd manager.
