Rafael Benitez is to demand "some answers" from the Liverpool board over their pre-Christmas plans to appoint Jurgen Klinsmann as his replacement.

Co-owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett held talks with Klinsmann, and it has emerged that under-fire chief executive Rick Parry was also "instructed" to attend talks with the German.

Benitez, however, seems unlikely to be appeased by that account of events, given his existing rift with Parry and said: "Off the pitch, I am surprised at things I have read. I need some clarification about a meeting with a lot of people that I did not know about."
