Liverpool co-owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett insist that Rafael Benitez has their full support, after the startling admission they held talks with Jurgen Klinsmann.

Benitez will surely be alarmed about the revelation that the former Germany coach, who will take the Bayern Munich hotseat at the end of the season, was sounded out about becoming the club´s next manager.

"We never reached agreement on an option with Jurgen, and we are both pleased for him that he has a great opportunity to return to Germany and coach a great club team." Hicks told the Liverpool Echo. "Rafa has both of our support, and our communication has greatly improved."
