Luton manager Kevin Blackwell believes the treatment of Liverpool counterpart Rafael Benitez by his club´s owners prove that football "is losing credibility".

The pair come face to face at Anfield tonight for an FA Cup third-round replay 24 hours after Liverpool co-owner Tom Hicks admitted that he met former Germany manager Jurgen Klinsmann to discuss the possibility of him taking over at the club.

And Blackwell, who handed in his notice at the troubled Coca-Cola League One side last Friday after the club´s administrators agreed to sell captain Chris Coyne to Colchester and midfielder Dave Edwards to Wolves without his knowledge, said: "The game of football at the moment is losing real credibility because of the way the businesses are being run."
