Skrtel: Benitez is just like Advocaat

Skrtel admits he hugely admires his boss at Liverpool.

“He loves football,” he told Sport Express. “He thinks about it 24 hours a day.

“When we leave, Rafa is still at the club, watching videos of our rivals’ games – in doing that, he reminds me of Dick.”

He added: “He is always wondering if we are happy and would like to do different things.

“In all aspects of the game, Rafa is open to suggestions and ideas. I like that.”
