Rafa Benitez has confirmed that Fabio Aurelio may not be fit for the start of the new season.


The Brazilian full-back suffered cruciate ligament damage last season and had been expected to be fit in time for pre-season training.


However, Benitez has admitted there is a major doubt over Aurelio.


"Fabio isn't fit yet. It could be another month before he is recovered, but we knew it would be a long time when he suffered the injury," said Benitez.


"He is improving, but it's not easy when you have this kind of injury."


Meanwhike, Benitez has also confirmed the appointment of a new goalkeeper coach with Spaniard Xavi Valero replacing fellow countryman Jose Ochotorena.


"Xavi is an important addition to our backroom staff and I'm looking forward to working with him," said Benitez.


I thought Aurelio did his achilles?


Also, I was never expecting him back for the start of the season, just assumed it would be October-ish.
