Liverpool boss Benitez upset losing Dutch pair to Oz jaunt

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is unhappy with his Dutch pair Ryan Babel and Dirk Kuyt being called into the Holland squad to play a friendly in Australia this week.

The Mail on Sunday says Kuyt and Babel will be expected to fly for 20 hours across 10 time zones to Sydney on Monday, only returning on Wednesday.
