Rafa Benitez receives threat banner near his house

61-year-old is just days away from becoming a Toffee - a move which will no doubt upset Scousers on the red half of Merseyside, but that in no way warrants this level of negativity and criminal intimidation.

Benitez lead Liverpool to their iconic Champions League win back in 2005 and is still beloved in the city, however, it is clear that a select few 'fans' aren't able to accept the potential move to Everton.

Some felt this may be a ‘dream job’ for Benitez in terms of location, the ambition at Everton and money at their disposal, but it’s starting to look like a nightmare. Is it honestly worth the hassle for him and his family?

Everton fans have also expressed their distaste at the idea of having a former rival manager join the club, with several left outside Goodison Park, but these have in no way threatened his and his family's safety.

It's disgusting that all that has led to this point, with a threatening banner apparently being left outside his family home.

There's a lot of different words that can describe the latest banner seemingly directed towards Rafa Benitez.

And vast numbers of Everton supporters were straight onto social media on Monday morning to speak out against the banner.
