Rafael Benitez would be eager for Liverpool return, says ex-Red
Former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore reckons Rafael Benitez would love Anfield return
Rafael Benitez would leap at the chance to manage Liverpool again, according to Stan Collymore.
The Spaniard is currently in charge of Coppa Italia holders Napoli, although the Kop favourite has been linked with Manchester City in recent weeks.
Liverpool slipped to their third defeat in five games at Hull City on Tuesday night, prompting fresh speculation surrounding Brendan Rodgers’ long-term future.
Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp has been touted in the media as a potential successor, whilst Benitez’s name has invariably been mentioned with regards to an Anfield return.
Collymore reckons Benitez would be keen to take charge of the five-time European champions, although the former Liverpool striker reckons the 55-year-old would require significant transfer funds.
