Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez believes his position at Anfield is secure and is confident he will be at the club for the foreseeable future.

Benitez is due to hold talks with the club’s co-owners George Gillett and Tom Hicks this weekend – the first since the highly-publicised row over the club’s transfer policy.

However, the Spaniard insists that any past disagreements will be forgotten when the respective parties meet.

“I am very happy in Liverpool and I would like to be here for many more years,” Benitez told AS.

“We have had some disagreements (with the owners) at a professional level.

“But when we meet and talk everything will be cleared up and it will be seen as a simple misunderstanding.

“We all want the same thing which is the best for Liverpool and as such I am sure that we will understand each other well.’

However Benitez accepts managers are under more scrutiny than ever before because of matters financial.

He said: “Maybe there is more pressure. They (the directors) look for quicker and better results because there are people who are investing a lot of money. This possibly makes the owners a little more nervous.

“But I think that everything will stabilise and, as has always been done in England, you will be given time for the projects.”
