Liverpool have confirmed manager Rafael Benitez is to leave the club by mutual consent.

The club have negotiated a settlement with the 50-year-old to end his tenure after six years at Anfield. The development comes after a turbulent season for the Reds in which they finished a disappointed seventh in the Barclays Premier League.

"It is very sad for me to announce that I will no longer be manager of Liverpool FC," Benitez told the club's website, www.liverpoolfc.tv.

"I would like to thank all of the staff and players for their efforts. I'll always keep in my heart the good times I've had here, the strong and loyal support of the fans in the tough times and the love from Liverpool.

"I have no words to thank you enough for all these years and I am very proud to say that I was your manager.

"Thank you so much once more and always remember: You'll never walk alone."
