Benitez says he has rejected offers to leave Napoli

Rafael-Benitez-NapoliFormer Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez claims he has turned down two managerial jobs despite being out of contract at the end of the season.

The Napoli coach’s deal with in Italy ends in June and he has been linked with his old Merseyside club, as well as Valencia.

But he told reporters in Spain:

“In the past fortnight we have rejected two offers, my commitment is here. I want to work to give 100 per cent with this team.”

The long-term future of Benitez at Napoli, however, remains unclear.

A 2-0 defeat against AC Milan last weekend has left the Naples side sitting seventh in Serie A and reports in Italy earlier this week suggested relations between the 54-year-old and the club’s board have hit an all-time low.
