Rafa Benitez has confirmed he would like to extend his Liverpool contract following talks with owners George Gillett and Tom Hicks.
The Liverpool boss met the duo on Sunday, in the wake of the 1-0 defeat to Manchester United, to discuss the recent strain in relations between the trio.
Benitez had criticised the owners’ failure to understand the European transfer system, but is confident any problems have now been resolved.
“I am quite at ease,” Benitez told Sport newspaper. “I would like to fulfil my contract and extend it, if possible.
“My family has settled very well and, to me, the respect and appreciation of the public in England is incredible.
“We are already very close to winning the Premier League. We are now eight points ahead of what we had last year and we have made progress in the Champions League.
“We are in a good position, but others also invest, progress and evolve.”
Benitez played down his row with Gillett and Hicks, and revealed the level of backing he had received from Liverpool supporters.
He added: “It has been a little exaggerated. The Americans want the best for the club and so do I.
“The only thing they want is that we sit down and talk because there is a difference in language and a significant distance. I think there must be better lines of communication.
“I am calm. I am confident that things are going to settle and we will succeed.
“40,000 signatures on the internet supported me to continue at the Liverpool helm. The signatures came from Australia or from Asia. Many supporters of Liverpool around the world are supporting a coach who has won major titles for the club.”
