Liverpool boss Benitez warns his rotation moaners

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has fired a warning at any moaning players over his rotation policy.

Benitez, ahead of today's big match against Chelsea, said: "I'll wait until the last minute to name my team because I think it's better that way and I won't speak to any players about my decision.

"They must be ready to compete against their team-mates. They must do it even if it's not easy because they want to play in every game.

"They know they must be ready all the time. Vladimir Smicer is a perfect example. He didn't play a lot but ended up scoring in the Champions League final.

"Our players must show me how good they are. They can go to a small club if they want to play in every match.

"At Liverpool we have to try to win the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and Carling Cup."

The latest player to voice disappointment is Momo Sissoko, only a substitute against Toulouse. Peter Crouch was also unhappy at not being in the squad against Aston Villa.
