Liverpool boss Benitez delighted with Benayoun deal

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is delighted with the signing of Yossi Benayoun to a new contract.

Benayoun becomes the fifth member of Rafa Benitez's squad to pledge his long-term future to the club following Steven Gerrard, Fernando Torres, Daniel Agger and Dirk Kuyt.

Benitez said: "You know that our idea was to extend the contracts of some players and Yossi was one of these players.

"He has been really good for us over the last year, scoring crucial goals and getting assists, so we wanted to keep him and I'm really pleased with the extension."
