David Prentice: Liverpool FC's Ryan Babel rant was fit for a twit on Twitter

PERHAPS there's a very good reason it's called 'Twitter'.

The latest knee-jerk cyber outburst - later deleted, but not before they'd been captured worldwide - came from Ryan Babel.

The Dutchman feels that some of his underachievement at Anfield can be put down to a lack of quality training.

'I wasn't allowed to train extra under our former manager, even when I wasn't involved,' he wrote on his Twitter feed.

'I begged lots of times, but it was simply not allowed.

'And during the season you don't train very hard because you have lots of games, so most of the sessions we had were done without sweating.

'But if I wanted to do some extra work, which I asked for every single day, I didn't have the permission.'
