Liverpool’s Riise: Benitez is the best manager in Europe

Riise said: “In Europe we always do well. I think we have the best manager tactically.

“Nobody expected us to play the way we did today and he gets the best out of every player. The whole team today was excellent.

“Away from home this season we’ve been very good. We played the way the boss wanted, we took our chances and I think we’ve got to be very pleased with how we played, especially the second half.”
