Liverpool boss Benitez rubbishes Juventus agreement reports

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has denied reports of an agreement with Juventus.

Speculation in Italy claimed the Turin club had already agreed personal terms with the Spaniard and a delegation were flying to Merseyside on Monday to thrash out an agreement with Liverpool to release Benitez from his contract at the end of the season.

However, the manager has rejected in the strongest terms suggestions he is ready to walk away from Anfield.

"Contrary to reports in the Italian media this weekend, I want to make it absolutely clear I have no agreement with Juventus and have not and will not be meeting Juventus or their representatives or any other club," he said.

"I have a long-term contract with Liverpool and I'll repeat what I said on Friday.

"I am happy here and my only focus is to do my job as well as I can to get the team back into to the top four, beginning with the derby against Everton."
