Rafael Benitez has explained why he left Alberto Aquilani out of the squad yesterday.
Aquilani didn't even make the subsitutes bench for the dismal 2-0 defeat to Portsmouth. Rafa Benitez has explained why.
"He had a kick on his calf and couldn't train properly yesterday. I don't think it's serious. He should be okay for next week but he couldn't make today," said the Spaniard.
