Jamie Redkapp: Liverpool cannot win Premiership under Rafa

The Liverpool supporters might be happy to keep manager Rafael Benitez in charge at Anfield but former Liverpool player Jamie Redknapp feels that as long as the Spaniard stays in charge of the Merseyside club, they cannot win the elusive English Premier League title.

Jamie Redknapp says:

I don’t think Liverpool can win it under Rafa Benitez. I think they are further away than they have ever been before. They have got no chance. Liverpool under Rafa Benitez can beat anyone on their day. But over the course of a league season they struggle.

For Rafa Benitez, the kudos is winning the Champions League. That’s his priority and everything is geared to that.

The best managers like Arsene Wenger and Sir Alex Ferguson keep basically the same team and system. In their big games, they field their strongest team. But look at Liverpool. Who’s going to play up front? I’m not sure about Dirk Kuyt, but who plays up front with Fernando Torres?

When Peter Crouch and Torres play together they look as if they can make it work but they never really seem to be given a chance. They get one or two games together and then Benitez changes it.

Well, we have all have had enough with Rafa’s rotation policy and it appears that there is one more addition to the bandwagon who wants Rafa to be more consistent in maintaining the same line-up week in and week out.
