Benitez: It's not trophies that matter, but the memory of trophies


Under siege Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez today said that winning trophies is not the only standard of success Liverpool fans should accept. They should also remember trophies won in penalties four or five years ago.

"We had 86 points last season, but we didn't win the Championship, so some people say it was not a good season for us," Benitez said. "But these people must remember we won the Champions League just a little more than 4 years ago, which would be only 2.36 Mars years, because of their larger orbit."

Benitez refused to blame his side's current poor form on the absence of missing stars Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres. "We can still win if they are injured," he said. "We didn't even have Torres on that day in Istanbul, which was, off the top of my head, 1,620 days ago. So this proves we can win."

Benitez also revealed he will take his squad on holiday during the next international break. "It's important for the players to bond," he said. Asked where they would go, he shrugged and said, "I haven't really thought of it. I don't know. Maybe Turkey."
