Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez admits they'll benefit from Jamie Carragher's decision not to go back on his England retirement this week.

He said: "I think it's important for him and us to see him focused on his club. I think it will help his career over the next few years.

"He decided to do it because he wasn't always involved. As a manager you must respect the other managers, and Steve McClaren has other options. He decided to use them and that's fair enough."
