Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez said he had no intention of leaving Anfield despite reports linking him with a move to Bayern Munich.
“I heard about the rumours at the weekend, and it is always flattering to be linked with other big clubs – because it must mean you are doing something right,” the Spaniard told Liverpool’s website.
“But even if I was approached I would tell whichever club it was that I am really happy with my club, my squad, my supporters and my city.
“There are still many things which I want to do here, so I am planning on being here for a long time.”
Benitez also confirmed that contrary to reports, he is not planning to buy Athletic Bilbao’s 19-year-old Javi Martinez.
“He is a young player who we know about, because Bilbao paid good money for him. But we are not watching the player and are not thinking about signing him, as I have read in the Spanish press.”
