Benitez raps Liverpool performance

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez admits their performance at Porto this week was not good enough.

Reflecting on the 1-1 draw, Benitez rapped: "It was not up to scratch, especially in the first half, this was not the way Liverpool play.

"We were surprised by the way we played. We kept giving the ball away, we made mistakes that are just not normal for us.

"It is an experience we will not repeat. We must learn from our mistakes to make sure that does not happen.

"Next time we know we must start the game properly, it is something we need to change in the future to make sure we start correctly.

"The players know that we did not do well and they know we did not start well.

"They are very aware that this experience must not be repeated. They will know that, and we know that.

"I am certain that this will not happen again, the future will be totally different, will not play like that again."
