Dalian Yifang head coach Rafael Benitez has admitted that he would return to England in the future.
Benitez left Newcastle for Dalian in the summer having spent three and a half years on Tyneside. It was a decision which angered fans with Benitez making it clear, in public at least, that his first choice was to remain at United. And speaking to BBC, the former Liverpool, Real Madrid and Chelsea boss has revealed he will return to England in the future, with his eyes on a job back in the Premier League.
"I follow all of the teams because you need to know the players and you need to know the league," said Benitez.
"In the future, so I am here, I am happy, and they are happy so hopefully we can do things well. But in the future I will come back to England, my family is there. But again I say, I am happy, it is not like I would like to go back right now. But in the future, yes. At the moment I am working hard here."
"My memories. Why I decided to stay in Newcastle after relegation is because we beat Tottenham 5-1 in the last game with 10 players and the atmosphere was amazing."
"You could hear the fans, the staff, the players and the togetherness between everyone. That is what I was looking for. If in the future, people were talking about our first game here when we had 30,000 people. After two or three games we then had 55,000 people so I like to see the fans enjoying the game, the passion and the commitment of the players.
"This is what I had at Newcastle and hopefully in the future when I go back to the Premier League."
