Momo Sissoko has launched an astonishing attack on Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez.

The Mali international, who started his career with Auxerre, was left out of tonight's squad for Liverpool's 4-0 win in Marseille.

Former Valencia player Sissoko insists he plans to hold talks with Benitez once the transfer window opens and wants to be a regular in the first-team.

He told radio station RMC: "I am really mad. The match is played in France, all my family is there and wanted to see me on the pitch.

"I respect that choice, but we will talk in January.

"That is quite a long time for me to ask myself the question (about leaving). I am not attracted to play one match in five."
