Benitez blasts criticism

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has blasted the criticism his side and he has received after the Reds were knocked out of the FA Cup in the fifth round by Barnsley. Benitez was quick to point out his previous successes.

"If you analyse the last few years since I came to the club we have won four trophies and been in seven finals, including two in the Champions League," Benitez said in The People.

"How many other managers have done the same in their first three or four years at the club? People can talk about being successful but nobody is winning trophies every year.

"To do that is really difficult so I think we are in a really good position with a very young squad, so I have a lot of confidence in the team for the future."
