After leaving Inter Milan, ex Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez is open to new offers for his services – but he has assured Liverpool fans he won’t be forgetting his allegiance to the Kop and heading to any rivals no matter how much money is on offer.
"Fans in Liverpool know the teams I would not go [to], but I think these clubs wouldn't offer me a job,” the manager said defiantly.
The 60 year old managed Liverpool from 2004-2010 after moving from Velencia, but was too tempted by a multi million pound coaching offer from Inter Milan to stay at Anfield. Now, after Inter have dismissed Benitez, top flight English clubs are bound to come knocking for the manager.
But Benitez has refused to entertain any suggestions his nemeses during his time at Liverpool might be interested in the manager coming aboard.
"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!” He said.
While Benitez has refused to coach any of Liverpool’s rivals, he has not dismissed the possibility that he might return to Liverpool for a second coaching tenure.
"I am really proud of being the manager of Liverpool Football Club and I would like to come back in the future," Benitez said.
"It would be a dream. I would be really pleased to come back in the future."
