RAFA THREATENED BY DIC?

Dubai investors are reportedly just a fortnight away from taking a 50 per cent stake in Liverpool.
That could be bad news for Rafa Benitez, with DIC reportedly 'not convinced that Benitez is the right man for Liverpool'.
The Sun claims that DIC are on the verge of buying out George Gillett after noticing that his name was missing from the statement from Liverpool's parent company, Kop Football Holdings after the refinancing deal.
A 'source' told the newspaper: "The Dubai investors are not convinced Benitez is the right man for Liverpool.
"They have been far from impressed by his very public rows with the current owners and even less impressed with the way Liverpool are struggling for consistency in the Premier League.
"Like all foreign owners, they crave Champions League football, for financial and emotional reasons. If Liverpool failed to qualify for next season's tournament, they would regard it as catastrophic."
