Speaking to Sky Sports’ The Football Show via the Daily Mirror, former Liverpool striker Robbie Keane has suggested that former Reds boss Rafael Benitez went back on his word over the forward’s playing time – claiming that the Spaniard told him he would start regularly alongside Fernando Torres. 

Keane, who made just 28 appearances for us after signing from Tottenham in the summer of 2008, scoring seven goals and assisting five others before eventually returning to White Hart Lane six months later, opened up over his Liverpool experience – claiming Benitez was the ‘wrong manager‘ at the time for him.

The former Republic of Ireland international eventually went on to score 126 Premier League goals in total, retiring in November 2018 after a 23-year-long playing career.
