A new movie about Liverpool’s Champions League victory in Istanbul is bound to upset some sensitive Man Utd fans. The film, called ‘Fifteen Minutes That Shook the World’, portrays Sir Alex Ferguson as a scotch-swilling drunk named ‘McTaggart’ (ho ho), while a character who looks suspiciously like Gary Neville sports a shirt with the legend ‘Rat Boy’ on it (again, ho ho) – surely it’s Yossi Benayoun who is Rat Boy?
Jamie Carragher, Stevie Gerrard and Dietmar Hamann all make cameo appearances, which you can see in the video below:
That’s Neil Fitzmaurice (Jeff in ‘Peep Show’, and Ray Von in ‘Phoenix Nights’) playing the role of Rafa Benitez… badly (but on purpose, I suppose).
According to Click Liverpool, Rafa gave the movie a big thumbs-up:
“The usually sombre Benitez showed a new side at the premiere, laughing hysterically as Fitzmaurice exaggerated his mannerisms. Afterwards the Spaniard laughed with fellow guests, and said the film had his complete support.”
As for Carra and Stevie G, a Vinne Jones-like career switch is NOT an option. Woodier than the wooden case in which Woody Wood keeps his wooden leg.
