Benitez thanks Liverpool players for public support

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has thanked his players for their public show of support. Liverpool need to quickly address a situation that sees them seventh in the Premier League and with their top four place seriously threatened by Aston Villa, Manchester City and Spurs.

Benitez said: "If you have seen the players since the Champions League disappointment, you will know they want to fight too.

"I have seen the reaction of Torres and Pepe Reina with their words of support. Now Steven Gerrard has called for us to fight together.

"All the players know that we have to improve, we have to push harder, we have to start right now.

"I have talked to them about belief and trust. And of course I am pleased that they have come out and said I am the right man for the job.

"We are together, we are working hard together, and that is the main thing for me."
