Could Rafa Benitez really be making a return to Liverpool?



With Dalglish now doing the graft it might not be the right time for a Benitez returnIt has been just under a year since Rafa Benitez parted company with Liverpool. After a reign of immaculate highs of winning arguably the best ever Champions League final and frustrating lows with failing to qualify for the Champions League in the 2009-2010 season, Benitez left Anfield thought to never return. But now the Spanish tactician wants a ‘dream’ return to Anfield.

After leaving Anfield, Benitez was tasked with fulfilling the impossible boots of former manager Jose Mouriniho who had left the San Siro for Real Madrid after winning Seria A, the Champions League and not losing a home game in his time in charge. Unfortunately, Benitez was released after only six months at Inter and is now looking for new employers. Benitez admitted that he would take back the reigns if offered the job in the summer and admitted it would be a ‘dream’ to return sometime in the future. Furthermore, Benitez was recently staying I Liverpool after parting ways with Milan.

Benitez is not the favorite to be in charge of Liverpool’s next campaign. Current caretaker manager Kenny Dalglish is expected to be awarded a permanent contact after averaging two points a game since overtaking the Reds in January. Liverpool has been a changed team since the takeover of the Scot and is now outsiders to take fourth spot after significant victories over Manchester United and Chelsea. However, after losses to relegation teams like West Ham, the chances look slim.

Rafa is not the loved manager he used to be and there are also other managers currently out of work. Moreover, the type of football which he would play as manager of Liverpool is significantly different to that of Dalglish’s which is currently very successful at the Kop. The question on every fan’s lips on the contention will be if it’s not broken why try and fix it?

    It’s true he’s coming back!! Were also going to sign Messi on a free as Barca don’t rate him. Please enough of the Rafa dribble as he’s not fit to sit sit next to the King!

    Rafa woke our club up, dont forget before he arrived europe forgot Liverpool fc he took us to istanbul then we won the fa cup runners up in athens second in the league we beat real barca manc 4 1 at there own grounds. I remember barca fans singing LIVERPOOL at ANFIELD and INTER holding banners up hailing the RED men during a champions league game at the san siro because we beat AC. KING KENNY is back but give RAFA a spaniard who came here to have a go got forced out because he didnt like what hicks and co had in line for our club plus he would happily come back tomorow YNWA RAFA.

    Rafa a legend he should never have been let go, we just had really rubbish owners and a really rubbish MD at the time, but Kenny deserves is chance first, it’s a shame Rafa never got a proper chance given the circumstances, but still I think the fairest way to do this is for Rafa to come back after King Kenny won us the title and decides when the time is right to hand over,or Rafa take over our reserves with the project he installed until that time,so the young players will grow with him.

    love them both they represent what Liverpool is all about and will always be welcome back at Liverpool
