Benitez forced onto defensive again

Published Add your comment

Rafael Benitez again leapt to the defence of his selection policy as he denied suggestions he fears the sack as Liverpool boss.

Benitez´s future has been the subject of intense speculation in recent weeks and the rumours are unlikely to subside after lowly Luton earned a third round FA Cup replay with a 1-1 draw against a Reds side that showed eight changes from their previous outing.

Asked about his team selection, Benitez said: "What is my strongest team? When you play Crouch, who is the centre forward for England, (Yossi) Benayoun, who is an international player, (Dirk) Kuyt, who is an international player and (Andriy) Voronin, you give the other team the message that you have a very strong side. The other players were injured."
