Liverpools fans have reacted positively to reports that suggest Rafael Benitez wants to return to England and manage the Reds once again, the club he previously led for six years.
Benitez is currently in Italy with Napoli but reports emerging in recent days suggest the Spaniard is open to a return to the Premier League and it seems the majority of Liverpool fans would be happy for him to replace Brendan Rodgers in the Anfield hot seat. The Reds are currently struggling for form this season and sit in the bottom half of the league table, whilst also having to fight for a place in the next round of the Champions League.
Rodgers’ job isn’t on the line just yet but things could change drastically in the next month or so, which means a Benitez return in the New Year is not beyond the realms of possibility.
The Benitez rumours have started again. Forget the John Lewis advert; it’s now officially Christmas #RafaRumours
