Liverpool boss Benitez counting on Voronin

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has told Andriy Voronin he is counting on him this season.

"We needed a little bit more quality at right-back and we got Johnson," said Benitez. "Trying to find that extra quality is difficult. [Andriy] Voronin has come back and has done really well in pre-season and did really well at Hertha Berlin last season.

"Yes, we have lost something with Alonso, but we couldn't stop him from going. We have tried to manage that loss and have brought someone in, Aquilani, who we feel can help us win the games that we were drawing at home last season. Aquilani, Voronin and Johnson are three players with game intelligence and quality going forward that can all help in that manner."
