Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez has praised new signing Andriy Voronin after confirming the Ukraine international's arrival at Anfeld from Bayer Leverkusen. The 27-year-old forward's move to the Reds comes on the same day that Boudewijn Zenden completed his transfer to Marseille. Benitez told the club's official website: "Voronin is a player with pace and with good movement. He plays between the lines, between defenders. He is a good worker also, and he scores goals. "He's not the kind of player you can talk about strengths because he has many things he can give to us." Meanwhile, Zenden has moved to Marseille on a two-year deal after being released by Benitez at the end of last season. The 30-year-old Netherlands international made 47 appearances for Liverpool during an injury-ravaged two years on Merseyside. Earlier in his career Zenden played for Barcelona, Chelsea and Middlesbrough.
