FOWLER'S MESSAGE TO BENITEZ
Robbie Fowler tried to help Rafa make up his mind about whether to offer him a new contract by declaring, "I have plenty of years left in me."
The Liverpool striker is still waiting to discover if he'll be offered a new contract at the end of the season but he remains confident he still has what it takes to do a job at the highest level.
"I think it's the first time I've scored on my birthday so to score the only goal in a 1-0 win is perfect. I'm very happy," he said.
"There weren't that many chances, it was an instinctive shot and I was fortunate enough to see it go in.
"I think there are plenty of years still left in me. I think people have been saying over the years that I've been past it. But in games I have started with Liverpool I have a reasonably good record and I hope that it can continue.
"I've got to keep plugging away and score as many goals as I can before the end of the season. Everyone knows where I want to be and until the manager says otherwise I'm happy to go along with things.
"I'm getting fitter but there are only four games left. I've not had many runs of games all season, but since I've been here the manager has involved me more and more and the more games you play the fitter you will feel. I do feel better."
