Liverpool morning news: Chelsea boss talks about Reds title chances and penalties, Ayre on finances

A selection of the latest stories involving Liverpool Football Club this Monday morning

Liverpool have been subject to more comments from Jose Mourinho this weekend as the Chelsea manager is still talking about the Redstitle chances.

Mourinho has yet again gone on about Liverpool’s absence of European football being a massive advantage in the title race.

He said: “When we speak about the Champions League and the title race, we have to speak about Liverpool.

“Because Liverpool, since the beginning of the season, have one match every week. They rest, they prepare, they recover, they prepare, they play, they have a day off. This is a big, big, advantage.”

According to the Daily Mirror, Mourinho also made an attack on Liverpool’s Luis Suarez and his ability to win penalties.

He said: “You know the kings of penalties, you know where they are – and they’re not here.”

Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre has been talking about the club financially and believes that the club will soon climb the Deloitte money list from 12th position.

He’s quoted in the Liverpool Echo, saying: “You have to take a reasonable amount of comfort from the fact that we know why we are 12th. We are not playing European football and that’s at the heart of it. We have a stadium that doesn’t allow us the capacity that our demands dictate.

“So we know why, and we are doing all we can to address that. We are doing what we can in terms of European football by addressing it on the pitch and we are all hoping we can get back in the Champions League.”

Midfielder Suso – who is currently on loan at La Liga club Almeria, is quoted in the Daily Express saying he would like to be part of a Liverpool side in the Champions League.

He’s quoted saying: “Next season they could be playing in the Champions League and I’m really keen to be a part of that.”
