Liverpool Boss Rafael Benitez's Agent Rejects Link With Juventus

Rafa set to stay with Reds.
The agent of Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez has played down reports suggesting his client is being lined up to replace Ciro Ferrarra as coach of Juventus.

The Reds and the Old Lady have had their problems this season, with both tacticians coming under heavy pressure.

A 2-1 defeat to Roma at the weekend has increased the pressure on Ferrara, with many believing that time is running out for him in Turin.

Benitez is known to be admired at Juve; however, his agent Manuel Garcia Quilon claims the Spaniard is fully commited to Liverpool, although he admits things can change very quickly in football.

"This hypothesis is not correct because Rafa has a four-year contract with the Reds," he told calciomercato.it. "His figure is very important there, the idols of the fans are [Steven] Gerrard, [Fernando] Torres and Benitez.

"At Juventus next summer? I don't know what can happen between now and four to five months.

"In football, everything changes very quickly, but the basic principle is that Rafa has another four-year contract with Liverpool."
