Liverpool boss Benitez happy with Crouch

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez insists he wasn't playing down the performance of Peter Crouch when highlighting Andriy Voronin's contribution in their 8-0 victory over Besiktas this week.

"Peter is very professional and he's a nice boy," said Benitez. "But I was surprised because everyone was asking about Benayoun, Babel and Crouch, but I think one of the best players was Voronin.

"He didn't score but he was amazing in assisting the other players, passing the ball and controlling the movements. So I prefer not to talk about one because we should talk about all of them, because all of them were magnificent."
