Hicks promises Liverpool boss Benitez new contract

Liverpool co-owner Tom Hicks has publicly promised manager Rafa Benitez a new contract should he win control of the club from partner George Gillett.

In an interview with Sky Sports News, Hicks said: "If I was to buy George Gillett out, the first thing I'd do is offer Rafa a one-year extension. Hopefully we'd have success and extend it again.

"We communicate regularly. He's got the guys playing very well - Rafa has unique skills. We are playing pretty well and I give Rafa all credit for that."
