Hodgson: Liverpool not a candidate for the Championship5-10-2010
Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson rejected allegations that his team is in danger of relegation from the Premier League.
After the 2:1 defeat by Blackpool at home, the Reds recorded their worst performance in a season since 1954 since when were in the Championship. Hodgson, however, denied the team is threatened again by fall. "After seven games the fact is that we are in this position and it is not that of which we want to be. But we still 31 games to play and I'm absolutely sure that Liverpool will be in the last three teams after 38 th game of the season. We want it or not, this slow start will affect our confidence and our ambitions to be in top 3 of the Premiership. However, I think it is too naive to mention that we are candidates for the Championship, "said Hodgson.
