Man City's Hamann: Benitez right man for Liverpool

Manchester City midfielder Didi Hamann says Rafa Benitez is the right man in charge of Liverpool.

Former Reds star Hamann told "I think Rafa is very good and is up there as one of the best managers in Europe.

"That's what I said when I left the club and I still believe that today.

"It's different class what he has done since he arrived. If you look at the results we had when I was there, even if we didn't do so well in the league, he did brilliantly in the domestic cups and the Champions League, especially with the players that he had back then."

Asked to compare Benitez with his City manager Sven Goran Eriksson, Hamann added: "They are different but then everyone has their own way of doing it.

"Rafa likes to get involved more on a daily basis, while Sven watches from the background and doesn't speak as much as Rafa.

"But they both know what they are doing and their records are both great and like I say, everyone has their own style."
