Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez has moved to dismiss speculation about his future after his side were held 1-1 by Luton in the FA Cup third round.
The result has increassed the pressure on Benitez but the Spaniard insists he is happy at Anfield.
“I love the club and the fans and want to stay,” said the 47-year-old.
“I have two years left on my contract and if I could stay for two years more, I would be very happy.”
When asked whether the club’s American owners wanted him to stay, a clearly irritated Benitez said: “I think so. But every day do I need to ask them that question?
“We are working together trying to improve the squad now and for the future.”
Benitez’s position will be discussed in a meeting of the club’s hierarchy in New York on Tuesday. The talks will be attended by the owners, George Gillett and Tom Hicks, as well as the chief executive, Rick Parry, to discuss the club’s plans for a new stadium.
They are also expected to discuss Benitez’s future after another difficult week for the club after three successive winless games.
Benitez was once again forced to defend his selection policy after picking a side that showed eight changes from their last game, with leading scorer Fernando Torres among those rested.
“What is my strongest team? Do you think our goalkeeper was troubled too much today?,” continued Benitez.
“When you play Crouch, who is the centre-forward for England, Benayoun, Kuyt and Voronin, who are international players, you give the other team the message that you have a very strong side. The other players were injured.
“I think the team scored a goal and needed to use their experience to control the game.
“But it’s the FA Cup. Look at what happened to Everton, Blackburn and Bolton – that’s the FA Cup.”
