The most bizarre quotes in sport: 'I would have given my right arm to be a pianist'

By Simon Rice

Former Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez launched an attack on his successor Roy Hodgson last week for commenting on events that happened before he arrived at Anfield.

Hodgson recently claimed that Benitez had banned Liverpool scout and ambassador Kenny Dalglish from the club's training ground during the Spanish manager's time there.

Benitez retorted by saying Hodgson is "talking about things that he doesn't know," before saying: "Some people cannot see a priest on a mountain of sugar."

It follows a previous bizarre remark about his departure from Anfield during the summer: "We have a saying in Spanish, which is: 'White liquid in a bottle has to be milk,"' Benitez said. "What does this mean? It means that after 86 points and finishing second in the league, what changed? The Americans, they chose a new managing director and everything changed."

Here, we take a look at some other bizarre quotes in sport.
