Oh dear, Pepe Reina has claimed that Liverpool played better football than Manchester United last season. United wrapped up the title before the end of the season and won three more matches than Liverpool, but ignore that eh?
So long has it been since Liverpool have won the league title, it appears as though coming closer than they have done in 19 years has made them all a bit giddy. Sadly, you don’t get a trophy for beating United home and away, which was a let down for Massive Manchester City last year.
“Sincerely, I understand that Liverpool played better football than United in the league, including during our huge win at Old Trafford,” said Reina. “Not finishing the work off in decisive moments was a blow. We conceded too many draws, and at the end of the day it made a difference compared to Manchester United’s campaign. Right now it is time to analyse what went wrong, what is the reason why we are not the champions. Then, we will correct our mistakes and start next season like a rocket! The squad cannot be happy with this vice-champion finish, as a trophyless season will always be a failure for The Reds.”
Poor deluded dippers.
