There has been a lot of talk on social media after Rafa Benitez joined Instagram yesterday. The Spaniard’s first picture was of him with his three dogs.
He then shared a number of photos of himself at his home in Liverpool:
Fans on Twitter reacted to the images, with many gently mocking some of the manager’s poses:
That last one is very David Brent

Now everyone’s coming back from holiday hopefully we’ll see some movement on the transfer front

Bloke works on his holiday because he knows the club can't be trusted to pull their weight.

Well he must be pretty happy about transfers if he's speaking openly on his Insta… hopefully next signing round the corner????

It’s nice to see Rafa letting fans see what his life is like away from football. He is someone who lives and breathes the game, and it seems that despite being on holiday, he’s still working as hard as ever.
No doubt, he is working overtime to try and get deals over the line. With just a month to go to the end of the transfer window, there is a great amount still to do with a number of outgoings expected, as well as hopefully some new signings coming in through the door.
