Valencia To Swoop In On Rafa?

British tabloid The Sun is not a paper that you can always rely upon, especially when it comes to transfer speculations, but its report that beleaguered Spanish club Valencia are eager to welcome their old Messiah is well worth a look into.

The Sun reports that the Valencia hierarchy wants to draft in the club’s former coach Rafael Benitez in the summer. Rafa is said to be unsettled at Liverpool although the Spaniard himself insists that he wants to stay on at Anfield but The Sun suggests that he could well be on his way to the Mestalla where he won the Spanish league titles in 2002 and 2004 and the UEFA Cup in 2004.

Before Ronaldo Koeman were sacked by Valencia this Monday, The Sun reported that Valencia wanted to induct the Manchester City manager Sven-Goran Eriksson into their unit at the end of the season but now say the Valencia at looking at the Rafa Benitez option, which is not quite feasible really since Rafa left the club in the summer of 2004 complaining of boardroom chaos and squad divisions.
