    Rafael Benitez's agent insists the Liverpool boss is staying at Anfield, despite speculation linking him with a move to Serie A side Juventus, reports BBC Sport.

    Current Juve coach Ciro Ferrara is under pressure because of the Italian giants poor form.

    However, Benitez's agent Manuel Garcia Quilon said: "I have had no contact with Juventus or with any other Italian club regarding an interest on Rafa."

    Benitez signed a new deal in March 2009 that could keep him at the Merseyside club until 2014.

    His agent added: "There have been rumours linking Rafa to Juve, just as there have been reports linking Guus Hiddink to Juve.

    "They are all media speculation and there is no truth in it. Rafa has a four-year contract with Liverpool.

    "He feels he has the strength to continue with the team and he is fully focused on guiding Liverpool up the standings."
