While the ex- boss named a couple of players from his time at Liverpool, international Dummett is someone who he did not shy away from praising.

“Lucas Leiva. He was a fantastic professional and very positive for the team. Pepe Reina sometimes does not get the credit he deserves, he was a very important player for us. Also at Newcastle. He is very consistent and is very clever in a tactical way. He can the players around him and the do not always notice that,” said Benitez.
