Rafa Benitez begam his reign as Liverpool manager yesterday, when pre-season training took off for the club, with only the players who took part in Euro 2004 being absent. New signing Djbril Cisse also took part in training.

At the training session held at Melwood, Rafa made his intentions clear: "I will fight to win the title this season."

Benitez said: "When I arrived at Valencia people said it was difficult to win the league in the first season.

"I won't say it will be the same here, but I will fight hard. We need time, but perhaps we have a surprise for the supporters.

"The message to the fans is the same as to the players. We have to work hard and have the good mentality that there has always been at Liverpool.

"Last year they worked hard, but we have to improve because we want to be at the top."

This is what Liverpool supporters are dying to hear !! Let's hope he makes good on these words !!
