Rafael Benitez has underlined just how crucial Steven Gerrard is to Liverpool´s future after the Professional Footballers´ Association chief executive Gordon Taylor criticised the over-use of the England midfield star.

Taylor, the Professional Footballers´ Association chief executive, said of Gerrard: "If that was a racehorse, the RSPCA would be on the case."

But Benitez said: "Gerrard now has his confidence back, when he is in that frame of mind he plays well and Liverpool play well. Beforehand he was injured, he needed to get fit but he still had to join up with the national team."
