Benitez: Ref must be strong

Published Add your comment

Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez is hoping the referee in Wednesday´s Champions League match against Chelsea gives his team a fair deal.

Italian official Roberto Rossetti has controlled five Champions League matches this season and all ended in home wins, with one exception - Chelsea´s win over Valencia in Spain in October.

Benitez said: "In the last six games in Europe he has refereed, five times the local team have won and once they haven´t. That was Valencia against Chelsea - it´s very curious."
