What Does Rafa Benitez Have To Do To Get Sacked?

Rafa's poor financial management forced Liverpool to sell out to the Americans

It’s a simple question but a difficult answer. Whether you’re a Liverpool supporter or not, you have to agree that if Benitez was at any other Premier League club, he would have been sacked months ago. Liverpool has been dismal in the league (in seventh place but not playing impressively), in the Champions League (already knocked out) and now in the FA Cup (getting knocked out in the third round of the tournament by Reading).

Yes, Benitez won Liverpool the Champions League in 2005 and made it to the final in 2007 only to lose to AC Milan. But Benitez has failed in the transfer market (just as one example out of many, he shouldn’t have let Robbie Keane leave as Liverpool are now too one-dimensional in attack). And the team’s performance this season has been uninspiring to say the least. Gerrard and Torres have been nursing injuries but because they’ve been the heart of the team, they’ve been pushed into the team prematurely. And neither have been able to add the spark to Liverpool that they had last season. It’s not fair on Torres and Gerrard. They’ve been carrying the Liverpool team for too long and it’s time that the other players stepped up.

Now the fitness of Torres, Gerrard and Yossi Benayoun is in question – and these have been the three best players on the Liverpool side.

This is a club that is woefully in need of a new manager to step in and turn the team’s spirits around. Benitez has lost the plot but more importantly he has lost the dressing room.

What do you think? What does Rafa Benitez have to do to get sacked?
