Benitez Rejects New Contract: How Much Longer Will Rafa Be the Gaffa?

rafa-benitez-2Rafa Benitez rejected a new Liverpool contract, because he will not be given complete autonomy over transfer policy.

Benitez wanted to hire a director of football type person, answerable to himself, who would handle transfer negotiations within a predetermined budget.  Current transfer control rests with chief executive Rick Parry.

Having that infrastructure would avoid situations similar to last summer’s Gareth Barry saga.  Benitez spent nearly three months orchestrating an £18m deal for the Villa midfielder, only to have it vetoed by the club’s owners.

According to the Times, Hicks supports that plan, but Gillett and Parry do not.

Real Madrid will be looking for a permanent manager after this season.  If Liverpool don’t sort the situation to the Benitez’s satisfaction, don’t discount a return to his home country.
