London, Mar.13 (ANI): Coach Rafael Benitez will meet the owners of the Liverpool Football Club next week to discuss his future. A final decision is to be made within a fortnight, The Guardian reports.

Benitez's position has been the subject of recent speculation linking him with a move to Real Madrid and he has been quick to take advantage of Liverpool's win over the Spanish champions on Tuesday to defend his record.

"Next week I am going to study my present and my future with my bosses," said Ben¡tez, who was also quick to dismiss suggestions that he could leave -Merseyside.

"I have to decide on my future in the next two weeks. People who see me leaving for Madrid are wrong. I have a contract with Liverpool, I owe Liverpool and I am only thinking about Liverpool. I am happy here and there is a project under way. I have been here for five years and [if I was to stay] from now on things would be easier," he added.

For the first time, though, there was the hint that he is considering other alternatives should Liverpool not allow him to lead a stable project on his terms.

"I want a medium- or long-term project. I don't want to be working day to day, always hanging on the latest result, without a programme to follow or an idea to develop over a period of time," he said. (ANI)
