After the announcement from Bayern Munich confirming that Liverpool had held talks with Jurgen Klinsmann, the reds co-chairman Tom Hicks has been forced in to revealing the degree of interest in the former Germany coach.
He confirmed that he, Gillett and Rick Parry were all privy to the plan.
“We attempted to negotiate an option as an insurance policy to have him [Klinsmann] become manager if Rafael left for Real Madrid or other clubs that were rumoured in the press,” Hicks said.
“Or in case our communication spiralled out of control for some reason.”
Undermining one of our greatest managers of recent years, especially in favour of a man with a limited CV compared to Benitez, is wholly unacceptable.
Let’s hope the future of our club is resolved soon – and without these three back-stabbers who now lie at the top of OUR club.
