Reina plays down Liverpool's title chances

Liverpool goalkeeper Jose Reina insists winning the Premier League is "not a realistic objective" with the current squad of players, some of whom are becoming frustrated at Anfield.

Although the Reds finished second last year and were hoping to go one better this season, ending their search for a first Premier League title, Reina thinks Liverpool lack the match-winners to do so.

After a mixed start to the current campaign, including two defeats from their first four outings, Spain international Reina has voiced his doubts about the depth of the playing staff.

"We all want to win the league but right now it's not a realistic objective," he told The Guardian. "There isn't frustration, there's resignation. We know what's in the squad; we can't do anything about it. All we can do is roll our sleeves up, work hard and try to win matches.

"Teams like Manchester United have lots of players who can tip the balance; we haven't got the individuals. There are games that get congested and we haven't got the vision other sides boast. There is a problem."

Reina also suggested that it was the responsibility of the club's American co-owner George Gillett and Tom Hicks to improve Liverpool's chances by freeing up further funds.

"It would be good if the owners made an effort economically," he added. "It would be lovely if we found ourselves in an economic position where we can bring in players and build a squad that can compete with other sides.

"But it's up to the owners to try to bring players in, not us."
