Rafael Benitez is holding out for a job offer in the Barclays Premier League.

The former Liverpool boss was sacked from Inter Milan last year, and claims to have had offers from both Spain and England for a return to management.

However, Benitez is holding out for a job in the English top flight, and is confident he still has the credential to make an impact at the highest level.

"I have had offers in Spain and England as well as other teams but I have always said my priority is the Premier League," the ex-Reds boss told rafabenitez.com.

"There's several reasons why - the respect, the way of working and my family is settled England.

"I am young and want to continue to lead top-level teams. I am a professional coach and my goal is to continue training and to win titles."


 

Benitez moved to England in 2004, and spent six seasons in charge at Anfield before leaving Liverpool by mutual consent.

His greatest moment as manager remains guiding Liverpool to Champions League glory in 2005.
