Reina: El Nino Not To Be Blamed For Poor Liverpool Form

Liverpool goalkeeper Jose Reina thinks that it is unfair for Fernando Torres to take all the blame for his misfiring season. Star striker Torres has suffered with injury and seemingly with a resulting lack of confidence amid his club's problems in the current campaign. The Spain international scored only his second club goal of 2010/11 in Sunday's much- needed 2-1 win over Blackburn and it is hoped he will now rediscover his best form. In the meantime, critics have been lamenting Torres for an apparent lack of effort and he has been linked with a January move to Manchester City or Chelsea. But Reina thinks that the Liverpool team as a whole should take responsibility for his compatriot's struggles, saying: "All strikers are about scoring goals, scoring winning goals, and I think he can build on that strike from now on. Great moment "It is more or less what is happening to David Villa (who has scored just twice in the Primera Division) at Barcelona now. "It is about time because they are great players but when strikers are not scoring fingers are pointed at them - it is not fair. "I think we were not assisting him rightly in the last few weeks and he could do nothing at all. "He can win you a game easily but we have to feed him in, that is the point." Reina is also hopeful that Liverpool will be able to make great strides following the £300million takeover by New England Sports Ventures (NESV). "It was an important step and it has been a great moment for the club," he said. "Let's see if we can build up from now and they (NESV) can help us a little bit in the winter transfer window."
