Spaniard feels Reds fans must be patient with the new regime at Anfield.
Liverpool goalkeeper Jose Manuel Reina says there is a reason why the Merseysiders are so far off the pace in the race for the Premier League title this season, and that is because the Reds do not have a strong enough squad to compete at the top.

The Spain international has endured an up-and-down campaign at Anfield, including making another costly mistake error late on in Sunday’s 2-2 draw at champions Manchester City, but the goalkeeper says that the club’s fans must be patient with new manager Brendan Rodgers.
“Right now we can’t compete with the big guns,’ Reina told Marca. ‘They have a big edge over us at the moment, both financially and squad-wise.
“There’s a reason they are so many points ahead of us, and it’s not because of one or two better players.
“It’s been a strange season for me because I’ve missed lots of games with injury. Some people say I’ve had a bad season, but honestly I think I only had three poor matches, at the beginning of the year.
“This has been the most unsettled season, both personally and as a team, since I joined the club.
“Liverpool is going through a transitional period, with new ideas and a different playing philosophy. That takes time. People have to be patient.
“It’s normal for us to be erratic.”
