Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez says goalkeeper Pepe Reina’s comments regarding his feelings that the Reds don’t have the individuals to target the Premier League title have been taken out of context.

On the morning of the Reds’ 4-0 victory over Burnley this weekend, Reina told The Guardian, “There isn’t frustration, there is resignation.

“Maybe it’s time to get realistic and not think about the title but just about winning the next game.”

But Benitez has attempted to defend the comments, claiming, “I think Pepe was trying to say something that we have spoken about before.

“We should not think about silverware or titles – just to get three points in the next game and see what happens.”
