It’s no secret that Rafa Benitez would jump at the chance to manage Liverpool again.
The Spaniard left in 2010, but until his current role at Newcastle, has perhaps not identified with a club ethos at Inter, Chelsea, Napoli or Real Madrid in the manner he did during his six years at Anfield.
Due to the fact he won the Champions League in 2005 and the FA Cup in 2006, Liverpool fans still regard him as a legend.
With Liverpool struggling this season and Jurgen Klopp unable to fix our defensive woes, there’s been murmurings from some that Rafa should come back and take the helm.
The manager didn’t withdraw himself from the speculation, instead suggesting that in the future it’s a definite possibility.
“And I always say the same with respect: for the moment I don’t consider it. I am happy here and I have years of contract. It depends on how my career evolves, we will go on one side or the other,” he told Marca, translated by Sport Witness.
“If we do it here very well, we can finish the work in these parts; and if not, obviously, the selection can be a footnote.
“You have to leave it there, and see what happens in a few years. And the same in relation to Liverpool. It depends. Maybe I’m still here and I’m not moving anymore.”
At EOTK, we’re fully behind Klopp and will be until the end of this season at the very least.
He’s made some pretty serious mistakes, but has done more than enough good things to earn our faith and trust.
If we get to the end of the season and Klopp hasn’t won anything and finished way outside the top four, perhaps it would be a fair time to analyse his position.
