Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina says the slump of form the team finds itself in is the worst he can remember since joining the club.
The Reds have had a torrid start to the season after a dreary last campaign. They currently sit 18th in the table, having only picked up 6 points from a possible 21. In addition, the Reds were dumped out of the Carling Cup at home to Northampton Town of League Two.
However, the Spanish international hopes that the pending new ownership issues will help resolve the mood at Anfield, and restore form to the pitch.
He said, “This is one of the worst periods I have experienced since I arrived at Liverpool.
“I have read about the change of ownership in the newspapers and I hope that things will improve.
“We have had some terrible results, but we have time to react. This team has not forgotten how to play football.”
Liverpool next face Everton in the league a week on Sunday, by which point the club hopes to have completed the takeover by New England Sports Ventures.
