Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez claims that Harry Kewell is currently lacking the confidence and fitness needed to show his best form.

Kewell has failed to consistently show the form for Liverpool which made him a major star for Leeds.

The skilful Australian forward, who has been asked to play in a number of different positions recently, has been below par and Benitez believes it is down to a combination of a lack of condition and confidence.

"We know he can play better because he is a good player," said the Spanish tactician. "He is one of the best in England.

"Harry needs to regain confidence and to improve his physical level and once he does that he will be okay."
