Benitez: Gerrard committed to Reds

BY foxsports • January 26, 2010

Rumours have implied that the Reds' inspirational skipper is ready to walk away from his hometown club in the summer following their faltering campaign. Liverpool have crashed out of the UEFA Champions League, FA Cup and Carling Cup, and they are battling to finish fourth in the Premier League. But Benitez, who is preparing his side for Tuesday's trip to Wolves, is confident Gerrard remains 100 per cent focused ahead of his possible return from injury at Molineux. "I don't have any doubt at all about Gerrard's commitment - and nobody at this club has," Liverpool's manager said in the Daily Mirror. "Yes, he can maybe play better or he can play worse, but he will always try, that is absolutely guaranteed. "People have talked about his form, but the consistency of form is something you can only find when you train every week and have training sessions in a row. "If you are injured and have to start again, and injured and have to start again, then it's difficult for any player to show his best, be it Gerrard, (Fernando) Torres, (Yossi) Benayoun or whoever."
