Rafa Benitez has already announced that he would not be carrying on as manager of Napoli beyond this season. Despite losing his final game as Napoli manager, Real Madrid’s vice president has announced that the 10 times European champions are getting set to bring in the former Liverpool manager as their next manager.
Speaking in a press conference, Bemitez told reporters that he was proud of the work he had done at Napoli and was looking forward to his move to Real Madrid which he called a dream come true. “I am ready,” Benitez told AS as he left for Spain. “I can’t wait to be there.” Upon arrival in Madrid Benitez said he was “excited and happy”, before answering in the affirmative when asked whether the “dream starts now.”
Benitez who started his managerial career at Real Madrid Castilla has probably just landed the biggest job of a trophy laden career that has seen him mange Valencia, Liverpool and Chelsea.
