Palop claims Benitez has a mean streak and that he ‘leaves you feeling like you do not even exist’.
He told The Sun: “Benitez is a great manager but, at a personal level, he leaves you feeling like you don’t even exist.
“I always felt that the only importance I had for him was in training or a match.
“You never, ever got a single word from him.
“Nothing escapes Benitez, in fact sometimes he gives his players too much information. In comparison Jaunde is a guy who likes to unify his players and who’ll give the same treatment and opportunities to anyone in the squad without thinking about hierarchy.”
