Smith blast for Benitez

Published Add your comment

Legendary Liverpool defender Tommy Smith has launched a stinging criticism of Reds boss Rafael Benitez after his side were knocked out of the FA Cup by Barnsley.

Brian Howard´s injury-time winner at Anfield dumped Liverpool out of yet another competition, leaving them with just the Champions League - in which they face Inter Milan this week - to contest.

Smith told BBC Radio Five Live: "In the programme for Saturday´s game Benitez said cup competitions are always dangerous if you think you can beat teams easily. So why on earth didn´t he put a strong team out against Barnsley?"
