Former Real Madrid manager Rafa Benitez was terminated from his position back in January only after six months of being appointed.

While there were many factors accounting for his dismissal, El Pais recently reported that the Spaniard had a spat with club superstar Cristiano Ronaldo over a USB thumb drive.

In response, Ronaldo said that he’ll send Benitez a thumb drive of all his goals for his manager to study.

It took a total of six months before Benitez was replaced by then Real Madrid B team manager and club legend Zinedine Zidane.

The current Newcastle manager has had a history of falling-outs with prominent footballers in the past.
