This source has suggested that there could be a mutiny at Anfield if Benitez is not given a new long term contract soon!
Liverpool risk losing SIX stars over delays dealing with manager Rafa Benitez’s contract.
An Anfield insider declared: “The manager wants to stay for a long, long time and has made that clear. But there has been no movement on a new contract despite one of the owners saying it was a priority earlier this year.
“That has set the alarm bells ringing with Rafa. At this stage of his career, he wants to plan for the future. There has already been massive interest in him from Spain and Italy.
“But the crucial thing for Liverpool is that around half a dozen players see their future as being tied in with Rafa’s. There would be a rebellion if Benitez had to leave.”
Leading that rebellion would be fellow Spaniards Torres and Pepe Reina – backed up by Dirk Kuyt, Javier Mascherano, Martin Skrtel and new boy Albert Riera. (tribalfootball.com)
I am not sure how this has been delayed so long, could this be yet more evidence that the clubs owners are inept beyond belief? We are talking about a manager who has won the Champions League and taken them to another final as well as winning the FA Cup oh and yes, he has led the club to a terrific undefeated start to this season. So what the hell is going on? Are Liverpool fans worried about the lack of activity on the contract?
