‘It Would Be A Dream’ – Rafa Benitez Fancies Another Crack At Liverpool

Former Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez has admitted that he still harbours dreams of returning to the club at some point in the future.

Benitez, who has been out of work since leaving Inter Milan under a cloud just before Christmas, told Sky Sports News this very morn:

“I am really proud of being the manager of Liverpool Football Club and I would like to come back in the future – though you never know when, because Kenny is doing a really good job.

“It’s a question of time. You never know in the future. It would be a dream. I would be really pleased to come back in the future.”

Benitez also let it be known that he is prepared to listen to offers from English clubs, with a couple of obvious exceptions:

“Fans in Liverpool know the teams I would not go to, but I think these clubs wouldn’t offer me a job anyway.

“I’m a professional but obviously some clubs I would not go to, especially the big rivals of Liverpool. I won’t say the names, but it’s not difficult!”

What with Jose Mourinho sending a love letter to the Premier League yesterday, if you close your eyes and dream hard enough it could almost be 2006 all over again!

So, the chin-scratcher goes out to the Anfield faithful (especially the die-hard ‘Rafa is God’ brigade) – considering Dalglish’s impact on the second half of  Liverpool’s formerly-wretched season, would you still take Senor Benitez back over King Kenneth?

    no way!

  2. Ben says:

    Thanks Rafa, but no thanks! They say you should never go back and its probably true!

  3. gaptooth says:

    he had his time
    he did a decent job but sadly his managerial career is losing a shitload of momentum at the moment , and any big club with champions league aspirations would be taking a huge risk bringing him on board

    in 5-10 yrs time if he proved he can manage a sucessful club then who knows

  4. Freddie Mercury's Ghost says:

    Would love to see him back in the Premier League, possibly at Blackburn or someone, but the king should remain on his throne for the next few years.

    I’d fancy a crack at Megan Fox, but alas, such is life.

    i still can’t forgive rafa for unsettling xabi alonso….worst managerial bungle i’ve ever seen.

  7. C says:

    Kenny is the new Shankly. Minus the quotes.

  8. Montesquieu says:

    Benitez is a tard, there was a big enough populace within the Liverpool faithful who thought he bungled up a bunch of decisions, while others still supported him (well, with the ownership fiasco, it was hard to see whether it was the owners fault or the managers fault). Either way, I think he had enough time and should never come back.
