Benitez Wants EPL Return
Posted: 23 March 2021
The Beautiful Game’s European Correspondent Chris Wheatley has exclusively spoken to Rafael Benitez as he confirms that he would like to return to the English Premier League.
Benitez, formerly of Liverpool, Chelsea and Newcastle United in the Premier League, said to Wheatley;
“The priority is England because obviously I like the Premier League and my family is here. But I want to compete. Or to have a project which will allow you to go closer and then try to compete.
“I want to stay in Europe, and I want to stay in England. If it’s the right one in England, we can do it tomorrow. But which is the right one? The project, the competitive team, it’s not there at the moment so we have to wait.
“I would like to wait for one or two months to find the right one,” he concluded.
The Spanish manager has not been linked with a club in particular in the Premier League but there has been mooted talks that Southampton FC will make enquiries for him in the summer.
