Rafael Benitez has backed Maxi Rodriguez to be an Anfield success. The Argentinian winger, signed on a free transfer last month, has made an okay start to his Liverpool career but Rafa Benitez says there is far more to come once he settles in the Premiership. "I think he's doing well. For new players it's always difficult but he's giving to us some quality in possession and good movement, and he's working hard too," said the boss. "He will improve. The understanding of the other players will help with his play, and that will also make things better for us. "He's okay now. He still needs to improve his English but he's having lessons. He also has Mascherano and Insua around, and they help him a little bit. "You can see clearly that he's very happy - and we'll try to keep him as happy as we can."
