Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has admitted he shares Steven Gerrard’s frustration at their failure to mount a challenge for the Premier League this season.
Liverpool currently trail league leaders Arsenal by 17 points and face a fight on their hands if they are to finish in fourth spot that guarantees a place in next season’s Champions League qualifying rounds.
Skipper Gerrard was critical of the club’s league form earlier this week and Benitez says it is a view shared by everyone connected to the club.
“Everyone at Liverpool shares Steven’s sentiments, there is no question about that,” Benitez told the Liverpool Echo.
“We wanted to be further up the table and the fact that we are not is a disappointment to everyone.
“But the important thing now is to concentrate on what we can still do.
“We are still in the Champions League and our record in that competition is one that most other clubs would envy.
“And we are still confident of finishing in the top four, which would obviously mean we would qualify for next season’s Champions League again.”
