Hyypia on Liverpool, Benitez & coaching

Former Liverpool defender Sami Hyypia says life as a player is "easy" compared with his current role coaching German side Bayer Leverkusen.

The Finn played for Leverkusen after leaving Liverpool in 2009, and moved into coaching the club last year - sharing duties with Sascha Lewandowski as Hyypia does not have his licence yet.

The 39-year-old reflects on his time at Anfield with "joy" and says he learnt the most from former Reds manager Rafael Benitez.
