As reported by the Chronicle, Rafa Benitez has warned his players that they must improve their game management.
Speaking after yesterday’s defeat to Sheffield Wednesday, Benitez said: “We needed to score but we were a little bit anxious and made mistakes. We gave them too much space to play on the counter.
“Again, these are the types of games we have to manage because we are losing games that maybe you can draw or win.
“We have to learn that.”
He then added: “I don’t like being right but I said before the game that it would be tough against a good team. We have seen that, they have experience in this league.
“They have good players and they are well organised.
“And because we didn’t take our chances at the beginning they started having chances and creating problems in counter attacks.
“So I think we have to learn how to manage in games.”
