Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez could not resist to show his disappointment after 1-0 loss to Wigan.
Liverpool could have jumped into the fourth place if they had beaten Wigan Athletic last night. The reds have been trailing this season after they decided to load off their midfielder Xabi Alonso to Santiago Bernabeau, though last night they could cling into the fourth place to reserve the Champions League berth next season but they couldn’t do so as they were not able to score a single goal against Wigan.
The manager told BBC: “I’m really disappointed, In the first half we didn’t do anything and didn’t show the attitude required. It’s difficult to explain.”
“At half-time we talked about the things we weren’t doing well – the attitude and the character. We made too many mistakes and played too quickly.”
Wigan managed to score a goal [which resulted to be the match winner later on] at 35th minute from a mistake by Dirk Kuyt.
Moreover he told, “We didn’t deserve anything in the first half, in the second half we worked harder but Wigan defended really well.”
The defeat leaves the side with a mere disappointment and it seems that it’s getting harder and harder for the Anfield to find themselves in the Champions League next season.
