Under-fire Liverpool chief executive Rick Parry says he would be happy to hold talks with Rafa Benitez over claims he met with Jurgen Klinsmann.
Benitez demanded urgent talks with the club’s board after it emerged that Parry had been involved in discussions with Klinsmann about replacing Benitez at Anfield.
The latest twist has raised further doubts about Benitez’s future and the Spaniard said yesterday that he wanted to get to the bottom of the issue.
“I am more than happy to sit down and talk to Rafa about this,” Parry told the Liverpool Echo.
The same report claims that Klinsmann held two meetings with Hicks last year about the manager’s job at Liverpool, before the former Germany boss opted to accept the offer of a job from Bayern Munich.
