Reds favourite open to Anfield return.
Former Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez, currently at Napoli, is said to be open to returning to the club to replace the struggling Brendan Rodgers, according to Spanish source Fichajes.net.
The Spaniard left Liverpool in 2010 and has since worked at Inter Milan, Chelsea and now Napoli, but it is thought that he would like another chance at his old club and that he will not renew his current contract at the Stadio San Paolo.
The 54-year-old enjoyed a successful first spell with the Reds, guiding them to the Champions League trophy in his first season in charge, whilst also delivering success in the FA Cup final the following year.
Benitez also won the Europa League in a short spell as interim manager of Chelsea a couple of seasons ago, and could be a good bet for the club as current boss Rodgers continues to fail to deliver results.
Despite a title challenge last season, Liverpool have looked much worse this term with Rodgers’ big-money signings under particular scrutiny.
