Published Add your comment

Holland´s Olympic football coach Foppe de Haan insists Liverpool winger Ryan Babel remains keen on playing in Beijing despite the concerns of Liverpool coach Rafael Benitez.

Benitez is worried the 21-year-old´s recovery from the ankle injury sustained on international duty in the build-up to Euro 2008 could be disrupted by his participation in China.

But De Haan told De Telegraaf: "Ryan is very at ease under the words of Benitez. Other Liverpool players are also going to Beijing, so why not him?"
