Liverpool FC: 5 Most Important Goals Scored in the Rafa Benitez Era

It might seem a long way off now when Spaniard Rafa Benitez was at the helm of Liverpool Football Club.

Benitez arrived at the club in 2004 from Valencia, where he had an impressive record of breaking the stranglehold that both Barcelona and Real Madrid had on the La Liga crown.

The Spaniard presided over Liverpool's most glorious night in recent history in May 2005 in Istanbul, where they won the European Cup for the fifth time and took the trophy back to Anfield for good.

Benitez's was also in charge during the dark days of Tom Hicks and George Gillett and eventually left Liverpool in the summer of 2010.

Many fans may not have loved Benitez, but there is no doubting the man's impact on Liverpool Football Club.

In his time in charge, the Reds scored a great number of important goals. Important for Benitez as well as for the club.

I am sure there will be a healthy debate on whether these five goals were in fact the most important ones or if there were others that were more so.

Let the debate begin.
