Liverpool fans have shocked faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro claim that the Reds could well be set to bring one of their former managers back to the club.
Now not only has that made our punters look up with raised eyebrows; it also had our landlord moving over from the bar to the pool table where we have a couple of irate Liverpool fans wondering just why we are even discussing a potential replacement for Brendan Rodgers.
Our landlord tells us that most of it is down to Rafa Benitez’s comments, with the Spaniard making it clear that he still has connections to Liverpool.
The Napoli manager noted: “My wife and daughters still live in Liverpool. It’s not easy.
“The Napoli owner knows how important family is for me.”
Now as our punters note, this is information we had not previously factored into a decision and it has certainly made us think that a reunion could well be on the cards between the former club and the man who won them the Champions League.
Liverpool fans. Would you take Benitez back at the club? Do you think it is ever a good idea to go back? Let us know your thoughts below.
