Liverpool's Xabi: No rift with Benitez

Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso denies he's fallen out with manager Rafa Benitez after almost being sold last summer to Juventus.

"Each one has his own point of view. He is the manager and I try to do the best with what he tells me," Alonso said.

"We have a good professional relationship. We speak normally, saying what he wants from me and what I can give. He makes the decisions and we try to execute them.

"Last summer there was certain indecision and I did not know what was going to happen. I finished up playing well, though. I have had two quite complete seasons."
