Liverpool legend Barnes: Benitez making great progress

Liverpool legend John Barnes insists Rafa Benitez's team have made great progress this season.

"To be pushing United this close after being 20 points behind them in recent years shows they have come a long way," said Barnes, a two-times title winner.

"For me, if they won the Champions League but were 20-25 points off Manchester United as they have been, I'm not interested in that. "I'm interested in them winning the league or pushing them (United) close to show they are the best or, if not the best, very close to being the best team in the country."
