Evans: Liverpool made right decision on Benitez

Former Liverpool boss Roy Evans says it was time for Rafa Benitez to go.

The Reds confirmed on Thursday that Benitez is to leave the club by mutual consent, bringing his six-year reign to an end.

And former Anfield boss Evans told Liverpoolfc.tv: "It's always sad when a manager leaves.

"Rafa was a good servant to the club over his six years and obviously successful. Unfortunately last season wasn't so good and there's been a lot of criticism.

"Sometimes as a football club you have to make a decision to take the club forward and that seems to be what has happened today."
