Benitez: Lack of spending power will cost Liverpool title

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez claims that Liverpool's chances of winning the Premier League title are hampered by a lack of money. "We are getting closer and closer to winning the league every year," he told Setanta. "Everyone knows we are now genuine contenders.

"We've shown this year that we have enough quality in the squad. Look at the squad we have now compared to when I arrived here.

"We have better players with a winning mentality.

"But it is still very difficult when you analyse the financial power of Chelsea, United and Arsenal with the money they can spend."
