Pepe Reina has spoken of his '100 per cent' confidence that Rafa Benitez will turn Liverpool's season around.
The Reds have endured a disappointing start to the campaign after a raft of injuries to key players - but Reina insists there is still much to play for following our Champions League exit.
"Benitez has 100 per cent credibility and support among the players," Reina said. "He is a great coach and he knows how to get the best out of his players.
"He has done important things for Liverpool and will continue to do so. When he is under pressure, that's when he brings out the best in himself. He is perfectly capable of turning the situation around at Liverpool.
"The fans know that, for a number of reasons, results are not good now but they will be again. We need a bit of good luck for things to get back to normal: we have had so many players injured - like Torres, Benayoun and Riera."
Reina believes the absence of Fernando Torres has been particularly important. The striker has scored 10 league goals this season despite suffering with injury.
"We all know that Torres at 70 per cent fit is still better than lots of strikers on the planet at 100 per cent," added Reina.
"It's important for us that he recovers and recovers fully. Liverpool are one team with Torres and another, different team without him. It's not that we depend on him but he is very important because he inspires respect in the opposition."
