Benayoun unsure over his Liverpool future

Liverpool midfielder Yossi Benayoun has revealed that he is unsure about his Anfield future, despite signing a new contract with the club last July.

Benayoun's deal expires in 2013 but he was heavily linked with a move away from Liverpool in the January transfer window, and reports have begun to circulate again that he could be set to leave this summer.

It has been an extremely difficult season for Liverpool, with the future of the club shrouded in uncertainty.

Speculation is rife that manager Rafael Benitez will be heading to Juventus in the summer, while the club are also searching for new owners to replace the departing Tom Hicks and George Gillet.

And while Benayoun admitted he does not know if he will be at the club next season, he insisted that if he could choose, he would love to stay at Anfield for the remainder of his career.

"It's very difficult to speak now about next season," Benayoun said. "We don't know what changes there will be [in the] players, the staff so I think it's too early to speak. I don't know personally even if I will be here or I will not be here. A lot of things can happen, so we have to wait and see."

"It's nothing to do with [Benítez's future]. I'm enjoying here at this moment. If it depended on me, I would stay here and retire in Liverpool. The fans are the best in the world but it depends on a lot of things. It will be very clear soon and we will just have to see in a few weeks."

"When you're at a big club, it's normal when things go bad it puts the pressure on the manager, because you cannot change all the players. But there are people who decide. I don't need to speak for Rafa because he's proved himself during his time here that he's a big manager. The people above will take the right decision for the club."
