In another sign of the return to normal operations at Anfield, George Gillett will fly over ahead of schedule to offer some moral support for the important game away at Marseille this week.
Both him and Tom Hicks were due to arrive in Liverpool shortly ahead of the Manchester United game next week but George Gillett is now expected to be at the Stade Velodrome this week.
Benitez has already stressed that his players are capable of competing in multiple competitions:
“The players have experience of playing several important competitions at the same time so they will know how to handle this, they can do it.
“What is important is that we approach every game knowing we are playing well, we have confidence and then you only think about the next game when you have won the first one.”
