Benitez rejects Napoli deal?

It’s reported that Rafael Benitez has rejected Napoli’s first offer of a new contract, as he’s waiting for Liverpool.

The Spanish tactician is out of contract at the end of the season, and has repeatedly refused to commit his future to the club publicly.

Neapolitan newspaper Il Mattino reports this morning that a deal has been offered by the Partenopei, but has been rejected by Benitez.

The paper believes that the former Inter Coach is waiting to see whether a vacancy will open up at his former club, Liverpool.

Benitez’s family still live in England, so it’s believed a return to the Premier League would be attractive.
