Former Liverpool boss Benitez targets Chelsea job

Former Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez has admitted he would consider returning to the Premier League with Chelsea, despite the rivalry between the two sides, according to the Guardian.



Benitez, who led Liverpool between 2004 and 2010, has been out of management since leaving Italian giants Inter in late 2010, leaving the Serie A side after winning the Club World Cup in December. The 51-year-old said: “[Chelsea] have now Roberto Di Matteo in [temporary] charge…I have to wait and [see] if something happens in the future. As a manager with experience…I am open to offers.


The Guardian add that Benitez was quietly approached last month by Chelsea when Andre Villas-Boas’ future was in doubt, with the offer of a short-term role until the end of the season. But now Villas-Boas, who was sacked on Sunday, has departed, the prospect of a long-term position is in the offing.


It was during Jose Mourinho’s time as Chelsea manager that the rivalry between the Blues and the Reds flared up, with the Champions League semi-final of 2005 a particular flash point. But the Guardian report that Benitez believes the Liverpool supporters would understand his desire to return to management.
