Liverpool's American owners: Business as usual

Liverpool co-owners George Gillett and Tom Hicks have released another statement after yesterday's press speculation regarding a split with manager Rafa Benitez over his transfer demands.

The statement on liverpoolfc.tv read: "Despite speculation in today's newspapers, there is nothing new to say.

"We had a good win yesterday and have got some very important games coming up starting with Porto on Wednesday, followed by Bolton and Reading, before Marseille and Manchester United in a few weeks.

"Both of us, together with Chief Executive Rick Parry, plan to meet with Rafa when we come over mid December to make decisions on the team's requirements at that time."
