Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez denies touting himself for Brendan Rodgers' job at Liverpool.

Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez denies touting himself for Brendan Rodgers' job at Liverpool.

Benitez recently was quoted as saying he wanted to return 'home' to Liverpool and that his wish was to move to a top club, possibly in England next season.

That was interpreted by some as a possible return to Liverpool, but Benitez meant his family home.

For reasons of clarity, the Spaniard declined the opportunity to appraise Anfield incumbent Rodgers.

"I have a lot of respect for Liverpool Football Club and all their managers," he said.

"What I said clearly is Liverpool is my home, my family is living there and because I don't want any misunderstanding, I will not talk about the club, the position or the manager's position or whatever. My family's there, it's my home."
