Former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez has hinted his time at Napoli may be coming to an end.

The Spaniard was linked with a return to Anfield earlier on in the season when Brendan Rodgers was understood to be under pressure, whilst most recently the likes of Paris St Germain and Manchester City have been linked with moves for the Champions League winning coach.

And Benitez – whose family is still living on Merseyside – says he would be open to a new challenge in one of Europe’s top leagues.

“Today I’m in Naples and I’m concentrated on Napoli,” he said.

“But in the future I can’t predict what will happen. In the past I’ve coached in Spain, England and Italy.

“I think Ligue 1 is full of good players, who are very fast and well coached in a technical sense.

“However, the mastery of tactics is less developed than in Serie A, and the tempo is slower than the Premier League.

“I’d have no problem embracing a new adventure in a new league. There’d have to be the right offer, at the right time, with the right team.”

Benitez won the 2005 Champions League and 2006 FA Cup as boss of Liverpool, whilst he also won the Europa League as interim manager of Chelsea in 2013.
