Hodgson: Morale Low Among Players

Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson is happy with the morale of his players going into their Euro tie with Napoli. Hodgson admits his squad is down after a poor run of results, but he's taking heart from the training sessions since Sunday's derby defeat where the Reds are showing determination to find their best form. "The players were very upbeat today," Hodgson told "The training session was very good - the intensity and concentration was as good as one would wish to see at any stage in the season. That, in itself, is very commendable when you are down. You can't deny that we are down. We are down because we aren't doing what we want to do, because the fans are angry and disappointed in us; we are down because we are at a great club and should be doing better. "Unfortunately the reason we aren't doing better is down to a number of factors. But it was great that we all rose above it and got out there and started playing again. Now we badly need that result or run of results that will at least take us into a safer position."
