Gerrard sets sights on title

14 May 2008 - 07:30:06

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has admitted he is "desperate" for the club to mount a serious Premier League title challenge.

Rafael Benitez's side finished a distant fourth to Manchester United this season after ending an ultimately disappointing campaign 11 points adrift of their traditional rivals.

The Reds have not won the top-flight title since the 1989/90 campaign, but Gerrard is hoping to end the lengthy wait for league silverware next season.

"Obviously I have to be careful that I don't send expectations through the roof again, but for me I am desperate for it," he told the club's official website.

"I believe in this team and this manager and believe we can make it happen.

"We need help and new players and the manager needs help from the board to make these signings happen and make us stronger.

"I do expect us to be involved next season."

Meanwhile, Gerrard believes that Benitez will add more quality to the squad in the close season.

"He doesn't call me in and tell me names, but he does assure me and the other players that if anyone becomes available who would strengthen the side then he'll go out and buy them," he added.
