Well i guess Rafa is only confirming what all Liverpool fans already seem to know. The fate of three of their under performing stars seem set to leave Anfield
Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is ready to listen to offers for three of his international players, Xabi Alonso, John Arne Riise and Peter Crouch (The Times).
Whilst the Norwegian seems a player who is ready to be eased out the Merseyside clubs door, Xabi and Crouch may have a future at the club. It seems that Alonso is a player that Benitez wants to keep but may cash in if all else fails. Peter Crouch is a player that in my opinion is worth hanging on to. Liverpool are not blessed with an abundance of strikers and at least the giant has proved himself as a reliable finisher (88 starts, 32 goals) and clearly the Spaniard shouldn’t sell the England man unless he already has replacements lined up.
