Benitez: Premier League is fans' priority

Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez accepts the club's fans want the Premier League title this season more than they want European glory. It is always a tough choice for the Anfield faithful, so proud are they of the five European Cups the club have achieved in their history. But as Liverpool prepare to face Hungarian champions Debrecen in their opening Champions League Group E opener, those fans would probably settle for a decent European run and their first league crown for 20 years. Benitez said: "The Premier League is the priority for the fans. But the Champions League is massive, and we will not forget the domestic cups because this club are expected to do well in everything. "It is always important to approach every competition to win it. But in a top side like Liverpool, the priority for the fans has to be the Premier League. "Then the Champions League, the FA Cup and the Carling Cup. If you wanted an order, that is probably it. But I am greedy, I want to win the Premier League and the Champions League."
