Benitez : I could have quit

Liverpool boos Rafael Benitez considered quitting the Merseyside club before he eventually signed the deal.

The main concern for the Spaniard was the future of the club in the hands of American tycoons Tom Hicks and George Gillett.

The former Valencia boss has thus signed a contract which keeps him with the club until March 2014.

Benitez had this to say :

"It is true that at times I may have thought about my future,"

"There was a lot of uncertainty at the club but when you put all of these things together and the fact I am sure we can improve, there was no doubt in my mind.

"It will be easier now the contract is done. Once you sign a contract you know you can start thinking about the future. That is why it was important to get it done as soon as possible.

"The uncertainty at the club was the only thing on my mind before. But delaying the decision before saying yes at the end of the season would have been worse for everyone because we would have lost some of our transfer targets or certainly been at a disadvantage."
