Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez claims the biggest mistake he has made at the club was to be too successful too quickly.

The pressure has been mounting on Benitez as Liverpool struggle on a regular basis to mount a convincing title challenge and this season a Champions League place has proved too much for the Reds.

Benitez says he suffers because he was so successful early on.
He said: "I made a big mistake, which was to start off by winning four titles.
"Then people ask more of you, when in reality in the Premier League it's taken for granted that a manager needs time at the start to adapt."
