Liverpool boss Benitez: Clear that Gerrard is central midfielder

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has reaffirmed he intends to play captain Steven Gerrard in central midfield this season.

He told liverpoolfc.tv: "We tried to bring in wingers, because Stevie is not a proper winger. However, it may be I now get asked why I play him in the middle when he scored 23 goals on the right! People will always find something to talk about. However, it's clear he likes to play as a central midfielder. It might be his best position, but because he is so good he can also play in other positions. His position is not a problem."
