Benitez insists he can quickly start getting the best from the former Liverpool star.
Benitez said: â€œI donâ€™t need to spend too much time talking with Fernando. He is easy because I know him and he knows me and what I am looking for.
â€œItâ€™s the other players I have to spend more time with because I donâ€™t know them so well.
â€œI like to talk and work with every player, from the youngsters to the most senior guys. I train to improve them all. And Fernando will be the same. From what I have seen of Fernando in my two days here, I have seen a player with commitment who is trying his best and has ideas to improve.
â€œIf the striker is not scoring many then it is up to the rest of the team to create more chances for him. My idea isnâ€™t just to improve Fernando, but the team. I canâ€™t focus on one player."
