Blackburn Rovers may turn to former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez to help change their fortunes, according to the News of the World.

The Spanish boss, who left The Reds last summer, has moved to England after his brief spell at Inter Milan and is looking for a way back into management.

Steve Kean's difficult first season as manager, which included a win on the final day of the season away at Wolves to keep Rovers in the Premier League, means that the club's owners are looking at the ex-Liverpool boss as a possible replacement.


After guiding Valencia to the UEFA Cup in 2004, Benitez made the move to Anfield and delivered the Champions League within his first season, to the delight of Liverpool's fans.

But since his departure last summer, Benitez has struggled in management, after losing his job early on into his tenure at Inter.

Liverpool have since sacked Benitez's replacement, Roy Hodgson, and brought in Kenny Dalglish, who has flourished as manager since January.
