Benitez for Milan job?

There are surprise reports that ex-Inter Coach Rafa Benitez is among the candidates to replace Massimiliano Allegri at Milan.

The Coach is under fire after picking up one point from three home games between Serie A and the Champions League.

It is rumoured failure to get a result against struggling Udinese at the weekend could see Allegri sacked.

A surprise name has been thrown into the hat by newspaper Secolo XIX, who claim Benitez is in the running for the job.

It would be a return to San Siro for Benitez, who spent six months at Inter in 2010 before terminating his contract by mutual consent.

The more likely candidate would be an internal one, promoting Mauro Tassotti from the assistant manager role to that of Coach.
