Friends Of Liverpool

Rafa Benitez is set to meet new Liverpool Chairman, Martin Broughton for the first time, later this week.
The troubled Liverpool Manager has just overseen a disastrous season which, thankfully comes to a merciful end at Hull next Sunday.
Benitez has publicly complained that circumstances at the club have changed since he signed his new contract a year ago.
“I decided to sign an extension because the squad was good and the money was going to be there. But the conditions have changed.
”The reality is that if you compare with other teams in terms of money, power and the option you have in the market so you can analyse carefully and then you have answers,” he said.
”The fans are very clever, they know what is going on. It is very clear that things are like this now and still we have to carry on going forward..”
Clearly, he is not a happy man and he will make a strong case for a sizable transfer kitty otherwise it looks like he could be heading off to Juventus in the very near future.
When Broughton was brought in as new chairman, Barclay’s bank were also appointed to oversee the takeover of Liverpool by potential buyers.
It was also reported at the time that funding in the region of £60 million would be given to the Manager to spend on new players.
However, given the Manager’s recent public outbursts and the very bad season we have had, the boardroom may not be too keen on hanging onto Benitez.
Next week’s meeting will be very interesting indeed.
