Friends Of Liverpool

It appears that things are, at last beginning to stabilise at Liverpool FC.
Martin Broughton, on the instructions of the Americans, have given Rafa Benitez a transfer kitty of upwards of £20 million to spend on new players this summer.
It seems that Rafa has managed to strengthen his position at the club for next season, at least.
With his high four year salary of £16 million, sacking him was never an option for the cash-strapped club and with the breakdown of talks in a possible move to Juventus, the club and the manager have formed an uneasy alliance to continue working together for next season.
With Benitez’s relationship with MD Christian Purslow getting frostier by the day following a dismal season for the club, the manager is now dealing directly with new chairman Martin Broughton.
Several things were discussed in the two meetings including the 7th place finish last season, who Rafa wants to buy this summer and what players he is willing to sell.
The American owners have accepted that they will have to invest between £20 and £30 million in money to get the club competing again at the top tier of the Premiership.
Without that, the chances of them selling the club will be that much more difficult.
Players being mentioned include Sampdoria striker Giampaolo Pazzini, Werder Bremen’s young starlet Mesut Ozil and Valencia midfielder Ever Banega.
Players on the way out of Anfield may include Albert Riera, Ryan Babel and Phillip Degen.
