Rafa delighted with new Gerrard contract

Rafa Benitez is thrilled that Steven Gerrard has signed his new contract after returning to training on Wednesday. The Liverpool captain agreed a deal back in April which will keep him at Anfield until at least 2013 and formally signed it this week.

Benitez speaking to the official site said: "We have spent this summer trying to secure the players we have. It's really good to keep Kuyt, Torres, Agger, Benayoun and Steven. They are the here and now of the club and for the future it is really good. We are really pleased."

"We have a lot of good players who want to stay, to win and compete. The message has to be the same again this year - to be there, to be contenders and to fight. If we can win trophies it would be fantastic."
