Rafael Benitez has explained why he deployed Steven Gerrard as a substitute and not a starter in Madrid last night.

“Clearly Stevie needed to do a special warm-up in the dressing room with the physios.”

“Afterwards he was doing the normal warm-up with the other players. He needed to do something special beforehand but still he was not fully fit.”

“We knew it could be a problem so, after talking with the doctor and the player, it was decided he could play maybe a few minutes at the end.”
