Rafa on Lyon defeat

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez says he is very disappointed that his side couldn’t hold onto their 1-0 lead against Lyon on Tuesday night, ending in a crushing 2-1 defeat.

It was the Reds’ fourth consecutive defeat and the pressure mounts on Liverpool who next face Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday.

After the game, Benitez told press, “It was a difficult game for us, but we were winning 1-0 and had two or three chances that could have changed everything.

“We are really disappointed because it was a difficult game that we could have won.

“But we have done it before and now we have to do the same. We have to be ready for the next game and try to win, and afterwards the same with the other two games in the group.

“We have done it before and we have to have confidence we can do it again.”
