Speculation surrounding Rafael Benitez’s future at Anfield has been rife for many months now, although Liverpool’s 2-1 defeat to Barnsley means it’s not just the American owners who are looking to see the back of him. The BBC report that the Spaniard is remaining loyal to the cause, despite sections of fans now questioning whether Rafa is the man to lead them forward after a continually dismal campaign.
“I have been working (as a coach) for 21 years now,” said Benitez. “I have good memories and bad memories.
“But my commitment to this club is 100%. We need to keep going. It’s the only way we’re going to change things.”
A decent result against Inter tonight is vital if the Reds are to salvage anything from their sorry campaign. Liverpool have been in this situation before, struggling in the league but thriving in Europe. Can they bounce back and give the Italian champions a beating tonight?
