Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez may have his fair share of problems at Anfield at the moment, but he has hailed the first-team progression of a young player as a positive for the Reds.

Dani Pacheco made his Premier League debut against Wolverhampton Wanderers last week with a late cameo from the bench.

Benitez is delighted that the 18-year-old has built on his Champions League appearance against Fiorentina earlier this month.

"Dani is a player with quality who has played really well for the reserves," Benitez told his club's official website.

"He was going forward and is not scared to go against the defenders. It was a real positive because he has shown he has quality."
