Benitez's Dreaded Rotation Policy

Since we've won 2 games in a row, the press are pretty quiet and discreet about coming forth to blast Benitez for rotating his players again.

But I found out that Benitez not only rotates his players on the pitch....

His infamous rotation policy also involves hotel rooms...

Fernando (Torres) is seen in the Hotel near his Spanish team-mates, although one of the advice Benitez has given him is to form relationships with all the players. As a matter of fact, in the course of the season he will share a room with most of them because the manager rotates them when they travel. He spent Tuesday night with Finnan.

If every now and then there's news about Liverpool players not getting along, it must be the rotation policy in the hotel room as well.

Well, just telling you how the press works!

stevie g reveals this in his autobiography. it's one of the first things benitez changed when he came aboard. before that they all had 'permanent' roomies. steve's was danny murphy which was why he was quite sad to see him leave.

you have to admit that it is a good way to get to know your teammates better!
