Football: Rafa won't replace Paco.

LIVERPOOL boss Rafael Benitez is set not to replace his departing assistant Paco Ayestaran.

The Basque coach has not officially left the club after a major fall-out with the man he has sat beside for 11 years with Tenerife, Valencia and now Liverpool.

The club and Benitez's right-hand man are in discussion over the termination of Ayestaran's contract and an announcement is expected later this week.

Benitez has remained tight-lipped about the reasons for the breakdown in his professional relationship with Ayestaran.
