Benitez expects Gonzalez to complete Reds move

LIVERPOOL, England, April 13 (Reuters) - Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez expects Chilean winger Mark Gonzalez to join the club in time for next season after being turned down for a work permit last August.

The 2005 European champions signed Gonzalez from Spanish club Albacete last July but loaned him to Real Sociedad after he failed to secure a permit to play in the Premier League.

'Mark is playing really well in Spain and he was man of the match last week against Real Madrid when he scored a goal,' Benitez told reporters on Thursday.

'He has pace and he also has a lot of quality. I can say he has more quality than a lot of players playing in the Premiership at the moment.

'I still don't understand how he was refused a work permit last season and I think they will reconsider that now.

'My idea is clear, it is to have Mark working with us at Melwood (training ground) in time for next season,' added Benitez.
