Jamie Carragher has welcomed Rafa Benitez's new contract with Liverpool.

"We all have our own issues, at different times, with contracts so we understand what the manager's been through, but hopefully it is sorted now and we can move on for the rest of the season and for future years," Carragher told Sky Sports News.

Asked if uncertainty over Benitez's future was distracting for the players, Carragher said: "No not really we all have our own issues at times even now there are different players probably not sure what they are going to do this season or next season so that's just part of football.

"But I think it is always better when everything is sorted out and people know exactly what is happening."
