Rafa ‘“ all signs are positive

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has spoken to the club’s official web site and sounds very upbeat about the club’s prospects in the immediate future.

Looking ahead to the 2009/10 season, Benitez says that last season’s Premier League campaign showed his side are making progress and predicts we could be in store for a very important era at Anfield.

“If you analyse the number of points, 86, you see it’s a record for the club in the Premier League,” he said.

“We are going forward, we are progressing. For the future this is good news and hopefully this is the beginning of something important.

“In terms of the consistency of the team we’ve been really good. The squad is better, the mentality is very good and the players are competing for their positions.”
