Rafael Benitez wants to see "the real Steven Gerrard" driving Liverpool towards more European glory.

But the Liverpool boss has no worries about his skipper´s state of mind following a distressing accident which ended with a 10-year-old boy in hospital with a broken leg.

"Steven is fine, OK, he has trained normally and I have talked with him," Benitez said. "He has been to see the lad in hospital, but I do not see any problem for Steven playing after the accident. Everybody understands the situation and what happened."
