Benitez unfazed by Dudek report
Jerzy Dudek
Dudek won the Champions League with Liverpool in 2005
Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez is unconcerned by comments from Jerzy Dudek that the goalkeeper could leave when his contract ends in the summer.

Dudek, 34, was quoted in The Sun saying he planned to quit Liverpool as he is fed up being treated like "a slave".

But Benitez said: "We are talking about his future and maybe he will leave but he is perfectly prepared mentally to be in the squad at Chelsea."

Dudek has made only five appearances for the Reds this season.

The club's 2005 Champions League hero has been forced to play second fiddle since the arrival of Jose Reina at Anfield two years ago.

Dudek, who is thought to be a target for Wolfsburg and his former club Feyenoord, feels he has no option but to leave.

The Poland keeper was reported to have said: "I have to finally tell Rafa I'm leaving because maybe he's not aware of it.

"I will remember Liverpool fondly as a success but not the situation I've found myself in.

"When a player knows he is a slave, he'll never give his employer his heart."

Liverpool visit Chelsea in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final on Wednesday.
