Liverpool team manager Rafa Benitez (right, in red) listens to a briefing from one of his staff during the Reds' workout at Mong Kok Stadium yesterday. Shortly after their arrival in Hong Kong, they left their hotel in Wan Chai and conducted their first practice session behind closed doors, trying to adjust to the heat and humidity. Star players Steven Gerrard, Fernando Torres, Peter Crouch, and Dirk Kuyt all took part in the training. The Merseyside team are here for the Barclays Asia Trophy and will play their first match tomorrow when they take on local league champions South China, while Portsmouth meet Fulham in another match at Hong Kong Stadium.
