    Benitez need to be sacked he and useless Torres plan downfall for cfc, a whole striker playing for 80mins without impact compare to Ba who play for 14mins has more shot on goal than Torres, he even score but was disallow as offside, Ba could had score hatrick today but Benitez always do things in favour of his fellow country man. Stupid Benitez.
