Rafa wants Liverpool job again

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has told the BBC he would have no hesitation in accepting the Liverpool manager’s job if ever invited back to the club.

Benitez left last summer after a season of poor results and a long political battle with the club’s then owners, Tom Hicks and George Gillett and Managing Director, Christian Purslow.

But Benitez, who now lives on Merseyside with his family following a brief spell as boss of Inter Milan, says the club is in his heart and he would love to return one day.

He said, “To be manager of Liverpool is a dream for me. This time, I know that Kenny is doing really well.

“I have to wait and keep watching games, but if you say to me in the future would you like to be manager, for sure, no doubt about this. When, that is the question. I have to move forward, anyway.”

Benitez also said that he felt the sale of Fernando Torres for £50million this week was lower than what the club could have got for the Spanish international.

“People were talking about maybe you receive an offer from another club. They were talking about £70m.

He added, “He was not playing at the same level the last time, but he is still a very good player. It is big money but could have been even better.”

The full interview with Benitez will be broadcast on BBC One’s Football Focus on Saturday lunchtime.
