According to the source below, AC Milan will make a move to snap up Rafa Benitez if their current manager continues to bring the Italian giants down.
Following the humiliating 5-0 defeat against Chelsea and the intense criticism that followed in the Italian press it has been reported that if Ancelotti fails again this season that AC Milan have identified Rafa Benitez as the man they want as his replacement.
Without any Champions League football to look forward to AC Milan have a distinct advantage over their competitors Roma, Inter and Juventus in the race for the Serie A title, though this of course depends on how serious they take the Uefa Cup, but that to one side it is an expectation at the San Siro that AC Milan must win the title or Ancelotti will be out.
Indeed if he gets off to a poor start then he can expect to be fired even sooner.
Benitez has always stated that he will stay loyal to Liverpool but with the club experiencing financial restraints and the off field issues that continue to plague the club any offer from AC Milan would be seriously considered. (footylatest.com)
I guess Liverpool fans should take this as a flattering story. AC Milan have fallen on hard times since they beat the Merseyside outfit in the Champions League Final in 2007 and Carlo Ancelotti is taking the bulk of the blame for their failures on the pitch. Rafa has done a good job at Anfield and was of course highly successful at Valencia and is therefore one of the best bosses in the game so therefore it’s no surprise he is linked with moves to other potentially vacant posts but I think it is highly unlikely that Benitez would leave the club any time soon as he will be thinking, quite rightly, that he could fulfill his ambitions at Liverpool rather than looking to move on elsewhere. Do the club’s fans think that their boss’s job would be under threat if they failed to win a major trophy this term?
