Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has called on the club's owners to end their differences.
The boardroom battle between Tom Hicks and George Gillett has overshadowed a season in which the Reds have reached the semi-finals of the Champions League and clinched yet another top-four finish in the Premier League.
Carragher has called for a show of unity though, saying: "The best clubs are always the ones you don't hear much from behind the scenes.
"That was always how Liverpool were run and that's what we want to get back to.
"United won the title last year and spent £50million. If Chelsea don't win the league this time then they'll probably go out and spend £100million.
"We've done okay in Europe since Rafa came, but it's not as if we're going to get to the Champions League final every year, so the important thing now is to improve domestically.
"That's hard when Chelsea have got someone like Roman Abramovich, but what we've got to do at Liverpool is get things sorted out about the ownership issue so that plans can be put in place.
"But I'm sure Rafa will stay. In fact, I'm 100 per cent certain."
