Former Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez has welcomed the findings of Tuesday’s verdicts in the Hillsborough inquest. The deaths of 96 fans at the 1988-89 FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest at Hillsborough were ruled unlawful killings as a jury found the South Yorkshire police chief superintendent in command at the match, David Duckenfield, was “responsible for manslaughter by gross negligence” due to a breach of his duty of care. Benitez managed Liverpool from 2004 through to 2010, winning the Champions League in 2005.
