Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez refused to be drawn over his future with the club, after watching the Reds beat Luton Town 5-0 in an FA Cup third round replay at Anfield.
Comments from co-owner Tom Hicks about an approach to Jurgen Klinsmann hit the headlines earlier on in the week, but Benitez focused solely on his side's victory over the Hatters.
Benitez told Sky Sports: "We weren't really thinking about it because we know it's important to progress in the FA Cup.
"I was not thinking too much about this, I was thinking about the game. I'm really happy because we won 5-0 and progressed in the competition.
"We knew it would be difficult to score the first goal, but afterwards it would be an open game.
"We had a lot of chances and they worked really hard with a lot of players behind the ball. We were trying to do our job and they were trying to do theirs."
