Liverpool badgeRafael Benitez says he’s close to signing a new contract at Liverpool and has denied that problems exist between him and the club’s American owners.

The Spaniard revealed that the length of his new deal and his salary have been agreed although there are still some details to cover off before he puts pen to paper.

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo newspaper, Benitez said:

grafite Now we have to discuss my role and my responsibilities as manager of the club.

I don’t have any problems at all with the American owners. My agent only received the draft document of my contract on (Monday) evening.

My surprise is that some journalists can talk about there being problems before I have even read it properly and discussed it.
