Liverpool co-owner Tom Hicks insists he was "never worried" about Rafael Benitez's long-term future at the club.

Benitez ended months of bitter wrangling over his future by signing a new contract last night that will keep him at Anfield until 2014.

Internal politics had led to doubts about his position at the club but Hicks believes there was never a real possibility of him leaving and he told Sky Sports News: "I was never worried we would lose Rafa Benitez."

The American is happy with the Reds' improvement in the Premier League and added: "We have a chance to catch Manchester United. It's not a great chance, but it's a chance."
