Benitez: Liverpool players happy with rotations

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has revealed the players accept his rotation policy.

He told liverpoolfc.tv: "We can feel the team spirit is really good, and the only problem we have now is too many players, which is the situation we wanted," said Benitez. "I need to check how the team is before I decide for tomorrow, but now we have the quality we need.

"It's never easy to decide which players to change. But it's good for the club and for me because I can see players working so hard in training and telling me: 'Don't forget. I'm here'.

"Each week, it may only be a small detail which determines who starts the game because a player might show their quality in a training session or a practice match. This is the competition we've wanted.

"Yesterday I spoke to one player about the situation and I was really pleased with his response.

"He said he would be ready when he was needed and accepted the position like a professional. That's the mentality we need.

"I say to all the players 'be ready' because they will all be needed."
