Injury-plagued Kewell worth £27M in Liverpool wages

Since the summer of 2006, Kewell has made only five appearances for Liverpool, all of them as a substitute and the Guardian says it is guessed that the Australian, with wages taken into account, might cost Liverpool £27m over the course of his time at Anfield.

However, he remains highly-rated by Reds manager Rafa Benitez, who may play him tonight against Besiktas.

"He was very good when he came on against Blackburn and he was good in training," said the Spaniard yesterday, "but it depends on what other players we have available."
