The 32-year old Liverpool captain is moving towards the twilight of his career and is running out of time to salute with the Reds but feels confident that his, and the clubs, ultimate goal can be achieved.
"It is not easy and it is a frustration but it is life, it is football," the midfielder told Press Association Sport.
"This is a very hard league to win and there are some fantastic teams about.
"There are thousands of other players in this league who have not achieved what I have achieved so I suppose they are in a similar position to me saying to themselves 'I haven't got a European Cup' - I've played in two European Cup finals.
"I have done an awful lot in the game and yes, the league has eluded me.
"Have I got the time on my side? No. Is it impossible? No. Let's just see how the next two or three years go.
"I know I am good enough to play in a side to win the league and I know I am a good enough player to win the league but sometimes stuff is out of your control."
