Kewell not panicking over Liverpool contract talks

The Aussie winger's current deal runs out in the summer but he insists he is simply focusing on regaining top form.

Kewell told LFC Magazine: "I can't even think about a new contract.

That is what people have been talking about and saying about me, but I will tell the truth so the fans know the truth.

"And that is why I haven't honestly thought about it. I can't think about it at the moment.

"With my injury history and my record over the last two seasons, games and goals-wise, I can look no further than the next match.

"That is all I am prepared to do. Take one training session at a time and do my best and give my all every time."

Kewell revealed one of his major motivations as he regains form is to repay the faith shown in him by the boss, Rafa Benitez.

He explained: "Given my Liverpool career, and the way it has gone, all I want to do is take the chance that the manager is giving me.

"I want to repay him for that, and the boys who have helped me through, for sticking with me and not giving up."
