Sissoko confident of Liverpool stay

Liverpool's bit-part midfielder Mohamed Sissoko claims he has been assured of his future by Reds boss Rafa Benitez.

Sissoko, 22, started Liverpool's defeat at Reading on Saturday but that was only his fifth appearance from the off in The Premier League this season.

The Mali international has fallen behind Javier Mascherano in the midfield pecking order at Anfield, but Sissoko is not disaffected by this.

"I have talked to the manager a lot and he says there is no need to worry about my situation," Sissoko said.

"Before I was thinking about why I am not playing but the manager decides and I accept it."
