Rafa wants to see out contract

Rafael Benitez insists he is ready to see out the remaining four years of his Liverpool contract despite being expected to leave Anfield this summer.

The Spaniard was believed to be heading out of Merseyside on the back of a disappointing campaign.

The failure to secure Champions League football and reported interest from Juventus was ready to end his six-year reign.

However, the Italian club have now appointed Luigi Del Neri as their new coach and Benitez has now revealed that he sees his future at Liverpool.

"My future is with Liverpool," said the Spaniard."I have four more years of contract and I want to succeed.

"I have no offer (from another club). I hope to make a competitive team."

Speaking about the ongoing uncertainty at boardroom level following Tom Hicks and George Gillett's decision to put the club up for sale last month, Benitez added:"I have had a couple of meetings with the new chairman (Martin Broughton) to clarify the situation.

"We need to know how much money we have and that also depends on (player) sales."
