RTE Sport are reporting that Rafael Benitez is disappointed with George Gillett’s refusal to give the go-ahead with a bid for Gareth Barry. The Spanish manager has identified the American as the problem after confirming the other majority shareholder, Tom Hicks, signalled that cash was ready and available for the move.

“I was in contact with Tom Hicks, and he told me we had the money. We have sold players for more than £20million in the summer, and he told me ‘if you sell players you can buy with that too.

“I have the support of at least one of the owners. I sent emails to all of them, but he [Hicks] was clear we had the money.

“It is not something that I can explain. You have to analyse it – but to me it is clear: they were supporting me if we had money, and we do have money.”

After Hicks demanded that Rick Parry resign from the club, it certainly appears that there are two rival factions at the helm of the club – Benitez & Hicks and Parry & Gillett.
