Kop back Rafa after Euro exit

Posted By: Staff

London, Nov.25 (ANI): Coach Rafa Benitez has been told his job at Liverpool is safe despite the team being knocked out of the Champions League for the first time in five-years.

The Sun quoted club managing director Christian Purslow, as saying of the defeat: "This has absolutely no bearing on Rafa whatsoever. He signed a new five-year deal only months ago. You don't deviate from long-term plans because of two late goals against Lyon and that's what it boils down to."

Liverpool failed to reach the last 16 after Fiorentina's 1-0 victory over Lyon made the Reds' win in Hungary meaningless. (ANI)
