Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez has turned down the latest contract offer made by the club's board. My concerns are growing. I'm a lifelong Reds fan but it doesn't need me to tell you that the team hasn't been in such a promising position for many years.
I realise that he cannot hold the board to ransom but doubt that he is being totally unreasonable. I sincerely hope that the last few aspects of negotiations can be ironed out in the near future to avoid the repercussions of last season when the club became a laughing stock.
Top of the league, in the knockout stages of the Champions League and still in the FA Cup, nothing must take away Rafa or the team's focus ahead of two huge derbies against Everton.
