Kenny Dalglish says Liverpool FC's new sponsorship deal will help Rafael Benitez.

Dalglish, now a club ambassador, believes the Reds' new 80m shirt sponsorship deal will help Rafael Benitez bring trophies to Anfield.

"Like every other Liverpool fan, I want the best assets of this club to be on the pitch - and this deal will help that," said King Kenny.

"If it can help Rafa and increase his budget - well that's what everyone wants.

"Success on the pitch leads to success off it and vice versa. It all leads to the same thing - a lot of happy Liverpool supporters. This is a fantastic deal for everybody."
