Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez insists he remains committed to the club and has voiced his frustration at the persistent rumours over his future.
Benitez’s position at Anfield has been the subject of intense speculation in recent weeks with Italian side Juventus strongly linked with a move for his services.
The Spaniard, cited the signing of Charlton youngster Jonjo Shelvey as evidence of his commitment to the club.
“I don’t like [the rumours],” said Benitez.
“I would like to see news in the press about trophies, or goals or fantastic performances about players but you cannot control everything.
“My future is (Thursday’s Europa League tie) Atletico Madrid. We have to concentrate on this game and try to win because it is the best for the club.”
Benitez is happy with the signing of Shelvey and admits he has other young British players he hopes to sign.
“But we have been working for years; I was trying to sign Gareth Barry before and Glen Johnson was the same idea – we were trying to bring in British players with passion,” added Benitez.
“Players who could feel what Liverpool means for them. Shelvey is one of these and we have two or three names ready so we will try to do the best for the club.
“We have this long-term plan in place and we will try to follow the plan.”
