How long before Benitez gets the boot

Monday, December 14, 2009

Rafael Benitez has come under much scrutiny in recent weeks, and I'm surprised something hasn't been done already. Liverpool are currently in the worst form they have showed for years, as well as being out of the Champions League and already out of the running for the Premier League, the question has to be asked, how long will Rafa last?

Its hard to say really. The Liverpool board have not given Benitez a vote of confidence, but as of yet they have made no indication of sacking him. After all, this is the man who lead Liverpool to one of their most famous nights in history when they came back from 3-0 in a Champions League final to win on penalties.

I think you will have to agree though that this season Rafa has lost his touch. Maybe it's bad luck, Torres and Gerrard both spent time on the sidelines but good managers should find a way out of these situations, or at least not let things go as badly as they have. So back to the question, how long will Rafa last? I don't think anyone knows, but surely if this current form continues he won't be at Anfield for much longer.
