Fabio Aurelio has supported his manager and believes the players should take the blame for our early elimination from the Champions League this week.
The 30 year old Brazilian, recently returning from injury, said “We know we can do better, certainly than we are doing at the moment.”
“It is difficult to explain how we feel. Being Liverpool, you expect to go much further in the competition than we have done this season.
“But now we cannot allow ourselves to dwell on what has happened, we must concentrate on the future to fight for a different title, the Europa League.
With the Merseyside derby this Sunday, it provides an opportunity to get back to winning ways and give us a huge boost, it’s a massive game and Aurelio knows it, “It is a big game next against Everton and a big opportunity to improve and regain the strength we need for a long season ahead.”
“The team are now intent on winning at Everton on Sunday and starting to get more points right to the end of the season. Then we will see what position we are in, and what we are able to fight for.”
While Pepe Reina is also looking forward to Sunday “To beat Everton is always huge, especially for the fans. We will be trying hard because we also need to win in the league and in the race for fourth place. We have to move on and keep fighting.”
