The Real Madrid captain claims life on Merseyside and in the Premier League is making his countryman a better player. "He was an icon at Atletico Madrid and had to make a personal decision, one that I respect. There is a different air about him now, and it looks like he is enjoying the experience," said Raul. "I watched his debut against Aston Villa on television, and I also saw his great goal against Chelsea. "There can be no doubt that he has taken an important step in the right direction. He gave a lot to Atletico Madrid, and this is a new challenge, though I am sure that he will triumph. "With a good coach like Rafa Benitez, and with the help of his Spanish teammates, the process of adaptation will be easier. There is no doubt that he will do well."
