Ten days and counting for Rafa?
According to The Times, Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has been issued with a ten-day ultimatum by Juventus to throw his hat into the ring for the soon-to-be-vacant managerial post at the Italian side.
Benitez is only 12 months into a five-year contract at Anfield, but Juventus are hoping to capitalise on the Spaniard’s discontent with the Liverpool owner’s lack of financial backing by offering him a much more lucrative transfer budget for next season.
Nameless sources in Italy are circulating rumours that members of both camps were spotted meeting in Turin earlier in the week to discuss the initial details of the deal, but that is most likely to be horse sh*t.
Rafa’s staying at Liverpool – end of.
