Rafa targets Premier League return

Rafael Benitez has announced that he is seeking a return to management in the Premier League.

Benitez: Liverpool problems not my fault

Benitez, 50, is currently unemployed after a disappointing spell with European champions Inter came to an end as the side fell off the pace in Serie A and finished second, behind Tottenham, in their Champions League group.

Having secured title successes with Valencia in 2002 and 2004 as well as the UEFA Cup, Benitez clinched the Champions League during a six-year spell with Liverpool, and he has now revealed he is seeking a return to England.

"The priority is the Premier League," he told BBC Radio 5 Live. "To have a project, a business plan, a methodology of what you want to do and how to improve a club. It has to be a good club."

Inter striker Samuel Eto'o revealed this week that Benitez had left the club after he lost the dressing room.

Asked what mistake Benitez made, Eto'o replied: "Until the match against Juventus [a 0-0 draw on October 3], we had been playing well.

"Then something happened in the dressing room, which I will keep to myself, and things ended up as they did."
