Rafael Benitez 4/1 to re-join Liverpool as manager
Competition: Premier League
Market: Rafael Benitez to be next Liverpool manager
Odds: 4/1 @ 888 Sport
Liverpool have ended the season in miserable fashion which could well see manager Brendan Rodgers axed now the season has come to a close. The former Swansea boss admitted the decision on his future was down to the owners of the club, and given how poor the Reds have been over the course of the season, coupled with the top-tier European managers who should be available this summer, Rodgers is expected to be shown the door.
In his place, the likes of Carlo Ancelotti (Real Madrid), Jurgen Klopp (Borussia Dortmund) and Roberto Di Matteo are all likely to be available, but one coach is likely to be Liverpool’s number one choice – Rafael Benitez. The Spanish boss won the Champions League in his first stint at the club, and is expected to be leaving current club Napoli this summer. He would jump at the chance for another Premier League job, and returning to a side where he enjoyed such glory is said to interest him.
For Liverpool, they are desperate to be back to their glory days in Europe, and manager Brendan Rodgers hasn’t been able to deliver. The Irishman could find himself sacked, and Benitez brought in his place, with 888 Sport giving odds of 4/1 for the ex-boss to be reappointed as Liverpool manager.
