No party time for Liverpool lads in Hong Kong

Liverpool FC coach Rafael Benitez will impose a strict nightclub ban on his players during their visit to Hong Kong for the English Premier League's biannual promotional tournament in Asia. He said his team were deadly serious about winning the pre-season Barclays Asian Trophy, ruling out any visits to the city's bar districts. "We are a serious team. We want to prepare for the games properly. We were training this morning and we want to be ready for the matches," he told media. "We take every game seriously. After the final we will go and have a dinner and everything. This town is fantastic but really we are here to win."
