Liverpool boss Benitez: Maxi will continue to improve

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is confident Maxi Rodriguez will improve.

The Argentina ace has put in several decent displays since signing from Atletico Madrid in January but is still finding his feet in English football.

Benitez told Liverpoolfc.tv: "I think he's doing well. For new players it's always difficult but he's giving to us some quality in possession and good movement, and he's working hard too.

"He will improve. The understanding of the other players will help with his play, and that will also make things better for us.

"He's okay now. He still needs to improve his English but he's having lessons. He also has Mascherano and Insua around, and they help him a little bit.

"You can see clearly that he's very happy - and we'll try to keep him as happy as we can."
