It’s an open secret that the entire Liverpool squad is behind the Reds gaffer Rafael Benitez as the boardroom chaos spills onto the pitch. Several weeks ago striker Fernando Torres came out and said that he would have to think about his future should the Liverpool board decide to sack the Spaniard and this time it’s one his compatriot at Anfield who has expressed similar sentiments.
Liverpool custodian Paul Reina says that he shall follow his coach out of Anfield should indeed Rafa be sacked at the end of the current season. Reina was signed by Rafa in the summer of 2005 from Villarreal and has played 150 matches for the Merseysiders since.
“I can’t imagine being at Liverpool without Rafael Benitez.
“I owe a lot to Rafa because he was the one who trusted me, brought me to Liverpool and supported me, and of course the mutual affection is there.
“We will have to wait. Like I say, my contract is with Liverpool but, if the coach moves and there is the possibility of me joining him, if he coaches another team, of course I would think about that.”
George Gillett and Tom Hicks: are you listening? Of course you are and if you are not, then it’s time that you do!
