Ex-Liverpool defender Hyypia full of praise for Chelsea boss Benitez

Former Liverpool defender Sami Hyypia says he learned most in the game from Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez.

Hyypia is now joint-manager at Bayer Leverkusen.

He explained: "I haven't had a lot of managers and coaches in my career but from every one I tried to take the positive things. The negative things, I don't want to bring them into my coaching.

"If we are talking about football tactically, maybe I learned the most from Benitez. Tactically he was good and maybe I'd say I've learned the most from him."
