Hamann: Liverpool boss Benitez knows what he's doing in transfer market

Former Liverpool midfielder Didi Hamann says manager Rafa Benitez deserves the benefit of the doubt over his summer signings.

Benitez has taken flak this week over the strength of his squad, but Hamann told BBC Sport: "I don't know what the financial situation was but he is a very shrewd man and he knows what's required and what's not and obviously when you lose players like Stevie and Fernando Torres (to injury), it's always hard to cope.

"Any team would find it hard to cope without these two and also they have not been playing as well as they did last season. They are low in confidence at the moment, you can see that.

"When things go well, you don't know if you will be beaten or how you will be beaten because you always find your way out of these situations an at the moment it seems like they don't know where the next win is going to come from."
