Rafa Benitez hint sparks speculation of Liverpool return

Napoli boss Rafa Benitez has admitted he does not know where his future lies, sparking speculation he could be lined up for a possible Liverpool return should Brendan Rodgers leave the club, according to the Daily Express.

Benitez was in charge when the Reds famously lifted the 2005 Champions League having been 3-0 at half time to come back and win on penalties while also leading the club to a second placed finish in the league much like current manager Brandan Rodgers.

He guided Chelsea to the Europa League title during his temporary spell at the helm of Stamford Bridge in 2013 too.

While he has tasted Coppa Italia success with Napoli since joining the club reports in Italy claim the 54-year-old Spaniard is on his way out of the club with speculation mounting he could replace Rodgers at Liverpool with the club still showing no signs of stopping their slump.

Benitez fuelled speculation by revealing he did not know what the future held for him, especially with unnamed clubs already handing offers to him – although he remains focussed on his work in Italy first.

He said: “I do not want distractions, we must stay focused right now, but later we will see.

“I have a few offers but I’m busy here and, I repeat, I will talk with the president in a few months.”
