Liverpool boss Benitez reveals Ajax approach for Babel

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has revealed he's rejected an approach from Ajax for Ryan Babel. "It is more difficult for the players who are not playing. Ryan Babel has been linked with a move away, but it was Ajax who approached me," the Spaniard revealed in Friday's press conference.

"They were selling (Klaas Jan) Huntelaar and wanted Ryan on loan, and I said no. He will stay with us; he can be a very important player for the rest of the season.

"The problem Babel has is the form of Albert Riera. If it was the other way around, Riera would have a problem. But that is what it is like at the very top."
