Inter Milan manager Rafa Benitez has launched a stinging attack on the Liverpool board.
The former Liverpool boss - who left Anfield in the summer - claims that the directors at the club know "nothing about football" and he is much better off at the San Siro.
Benitez, 50, says he has a far superior relationship with Inter club president Massimo Moratti as he is a man with a vast football knowledge.
The Spaniard said: "The last year at Liverpool I had directors who knew nothing about football and you couldn't talk about football with them.
"My relationship with president Moratti is good, he is a man who knows his football."
Problems at boardroom level have blighted Liverpool over the past few months - resulting in the current owners searching to find a prospective buyer.
Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson has gone on record to say that he will be relieved when the ownership issue is resolved.
