Carragher: Liverpool facing up to harsh truth

Jamie Carragher says no-one at Liverpool are kidding themselves about their status.

Carra says there is a lot of hard work ahead.

He said: "Liverpool get a lot of criticism.

"People say we live in the past - that we should be ­winning this and that.

"But the truth is Liverpool have not won the league for the past 20 years.

"Kenny did a fantastic job in his first spell but Liverpool was already steeped in success. In the two years before his ­appointment they had been to two European Cup finals.

"I hear people criticise Gerard Houllier and Rafael Benitez, ­saying they are failures because they didn't win the league. - yet I have to disagree with that.

"But if ­Kenny can get us back to where we were when he left in 1991, that in itself would be a brilliant achievement."
