Liverpool skipper Gerrard: Benitez always demanding more

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard says manager Rafa Benitez is always demanding more from his players.

"You cannot ever think that you can't improve," said the captain. "No-one at Liverpool will ever be allowed to think that way because it's not the way the manager operates.

"You might have played well - a defender keeping a clean sheet, a midfielder with a couple of assists or a striker with a hat-trick - but the manager will always find room for improvement.

"There's no relaxing under Rafa because he sets his standards so high. That's the Liverpool way and talking to players from previous eras, that's the same message they used to get to. You can always do better - collectively and as individuals. If you think you're on top of your game you can still improve. That's what we get drummed into us every single day and it really does help."
