Liverpool boss Benitez: Arsenal not so young

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has dismissed claims tonight's Champions League opponents Arsenal are a young, inexperienced team.

"I don't agree with this," he said. "Almunia is not young, Toure is not young, Adebayor is not young.

"He's not 18 years old. Hleb is not young. Fabregas is only 20 but he has played four years at the maximum level, and they all have the experience of a final two years ago."

Arsene Wenger has an answer to that. "We have played in a final but we are still young," he said. "They are all young. I cannot say they are old. I'm sorry."
