Liverpool's Spanish goalkeeper Jose Reina has suggested that his side have little or no chance of winning the Premier League title this season.
The 27-year-old believes that there is not enough strength in depth in the Anfield ranks for the Reds to compete with Manchester United and Chelsea.
He told The Guardian: "We all want to win the league, but right now it's not a realistic objective.
"There isn't frustration, there's resignation. We know what's in the squad and we can't do anything about it.
"All we can do is roll our sleeves up, work hard and try to win matches.
"Teams like Manchester United have lots of players who can tip the balance, we haven't got the individuals.
"There are games that get congested and we haven't got the vision other sides boast. There is a problem.
"It would be good if the owners made an effort economically.
"It would be lovely if we found ourselves in a position where we can bring in players and build a squad that can compete with other sides.
"But it's up to the owners to try to bring players in, not us."
