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 "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."
