Rafa ready to make decisions
02 May 2008 - 07:27:52
Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez has suggested he will use the final two games of the season to make final judgements on the Anfield futures of several fringe members of his squad.
The Reds are already guaranteed fourth place in the Premier League table and, after missing out on the Champions League Final following their midweek defeat to Chelsea, Benitez has already admitted he intends to strengthen his squad in the summer.
But the Spanish coach has also hinted several players could be offloaded at the end of the campaign as he looks to raise funds for a summer spending spree.
Peter Crouch, Harry Kewell, Andriy Voronin and John Arne Riise are all reportedly in danger of being moved on.
"Clearly now we have to start thinking about the future," he said. "We must improve and we will add quality to the squad.
"We have two more games in the Premier League to go and obviously we will try to win them both to give our season a good ending.
"But we will be looking at the squad and preparing for next season.
"You can see we are closer to the top but we still need three or four new players.
"We need to keep working, our scouting department is certainly doing that.
"We have two more games and will try to win them and then improve the squad for next season."
