Liverpool boss Benitez "relaxed" about job

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez insists he doesn't fear for his job. The match against Manchester United will be overshadowed by fans' unrest over the continued ownership of Tom Hicks and George Gillett.

A protest march is being planned and Hicks and Gillett will be the subject of increased security. It is not the atmosphere Benitez would want as he tries to end a run of four straight defeats, their worst spell for 22 years.

"I am relaxed in terms of my position," the Spaniard insisted.

"I know how we are working every day, the players know too. In the past we have been very good and the situation and players has not changed too much.

"It is about confidence and winning that first game. If we want to change things we must focus on football and not what is going on off the pitch here."
