Benitez still happy at Liverpool, says agent

Rafael Benitez has no intention of walking out of Liverpool in the wake of the latest revelations about his job, according to agent Manuel Garcia Quillon.

Reds co-owner Tom Hicks admitted attempting to line up Jurgen Klinsmann as the clubs next manager, claiming it was 'an insurance policy' should Benitez leave.

The move has been condemned in some quarters as having undermined the Spaniard.

Coupled with his high-profile fall-out with Hicks and co-owner George Gillett at the end of last year, it has cast further doubt over Benitez's long-term future at Anfield.

But Quillon insists his desire to remain at the club is undiminished.

He said: 'Rafa wants to stay at Liverpool. He is happy with the club, with the supporters and with the city. He does not want to leave.'
