Liverpool star admits to possible exit

Liverpool midfielder Yossi Benayoun has added to the growing uncertainty at the club by admitting he does not know if he has a future at Anfield.

Manager Rafa Benitez has tied a number of players to long-term deals, but Benayoun is not one of them and he was linked with a move away in January. The Israeli would like to finish his career at Anfield but accepts the final decision may not be his.

"It's very difficult to speak now about next season," said Benayoun.

"We don't know what changes there will be [in the] players, the staff so I think it's too early to speak.

"I don't know personally even if I will be here or I will not be here.

"A lot of things can happen, so we have to wait and see."

Uncertainty at boardroom level - co-owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett have put the club up for sale - is filtering down through Benitez to the players.

"Liverpool is a great club and I enjoy it but a lot of things are happening in this moment," added Benayoun.

"If it depended on me, I would stay here and retire in Liverpool.

"The fans are the best in the world but it depends on a lot of things. It will be very clear soon."
