Albert Riera suspended after criticizing Rafa Benitez
As we know, the player blasted tough words about Benitez, claiming he did not speak to the footballers: "The dialogue with the players is practically non-existent. There is a lack of tact."
At first, Benitez tried to remain cautious: "The timing was not the best for the squad and we will deal with this issue internally". But today, the club finally took a tough decision.
Riera tried to tone down the situation: "I have no interest in making Rafa my enemy". But he still mantains that the coach has "something personal" against him. His future in Liverpool is not clear now
