Maxi, who comes to Anfield after being on a free transfer from Atletico Madrid, “is a player that can that guarantee from five to fifteen goals a season as midfielder,” said Benitez told Liverpool’s official website.

“He can play right on the left or as a second striker. Get to the counter area and is a good finisher moves. We were looking for players with character and a winning mentality. With Maxi I have,” said Spanish coach.

With regard to performance rather discreet Argentine player in recent months in Spain, Benitez said there is not much to worry about. Coach knows that what he needed the Beast was a change of scenery, new stimuli. Of course that will in England.

Rafa Benitez Liverpool denies interest in Van Nistelrooy and Van der Vaart

Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez has emphatically denied the English club’s intention of signing Real Madrid’s Netherlands striker Ruud Van Nistelrooy on the winter market.

“We’re not talking about players,” Benitez told the club’s website after last Saturday, the British newspaper The Sun published Benitez’s interest in signing the Netherlands Van Nistelrooy and Rafael van der Vaart.

But the coach admitted he is moving to find backup and said he has had some good conversations, “though its priority is to talk to their own players.

It is believed to be in the final stages of negotiation with Maxi Rodriguez, Atletico Madrid, and takes the spotlight Greek Torosidis Vasil.

Van Nistelrooy, the former Manchester United idol, ends his contract with Spanish club at the end of the season and, according to “The Sun”, the only detail that remained would be Liverpool or Madrid would pay the fees of some 158,000 euros the week that sees the player.

ANALYSIS AND DISCUSSION: The Snake Maxi, “graceful exit or neglect of Atletico Madrid? Opina!

All eyes point to the directors of athletics. It seems that between Maxi and Liverpool have a big messed it up the Triad Cerezo, Pitarch and Gil. They have not sold last summer to a player who looked like a get out, are directly responsible for the Atletico has not scratched anything in this operation.

They say the club will save more than 1.7 million by not paying the tab Maxi yet here until June, but it would have saved anyway if he had now sold in January, and not given. The problem is that the upper hand was the player in this story.

Maxi because he knew that had no place in the team, Quique Sanchez Flores had no more with him. And he knew that if another club would bid with a concrete offer (say, four or five million), the Beast could have simply said no, that does not appear to leave the club. Because the contract would run out in June and there he would choose where to go, utterly oblivious to what he says Atletico.

Say, then, that the Triad has left Atletico at bay. Through negligence, yes, for having failed to sell Maxi at the right time, and have allowed the player to attain this situation of virtual fill in the template, which could have been, however, a perfect product to profit from the market.

Rafa Benitez, who is smarter than one, would not evaluate the performance of athletes in this transaction, but highlighted them with a subtle statement. “I know that Maxi was not doing as good as ever at Atletico , but he was doing well with the Argentina national team. And he wants to impress everyone for the World Cup 2010 “.

Well, this “was not doing so well” might be the fault of the directors of Atletico, who failed to renew and / or transferred on time. And that yes he was doing well in Argentina “is what Rafa will use to convert to Maxi, a major component of Liverpool. In a wild, eager for revenge.
