Carragher: Benitez will win a Premiership title with Liverpool

Carra told “Of course I think he can do it. He’s a proven title winner because of what he did with Valencia where he beat Real Madrid and Barcelona twice.

“That’s quite similar to here with Manchester United and Chelsea, who are above us at the moment. Hopefully we can bring some players in during the summer and we can change that and take it to the next level.

“Rafa is the man to do that and you only have to look at the job he’s done in two-and-a-half years – he’s won the Champions League, the FA Cup, the European Super Cup and the Community Shield.

“If you look at what he’s done since he’s been here, Chelsea are the only club who can compare – and they’ve had more financial backing than us. Since he’s been here, he’s probably done better than any other manager in the league.

“Everyone is desperate to win the league. I’m like the fans and I’m desperate to win it. It’s the last thing I need to tick off in my career. I won’t be happy until we’ve done that.”
