Ex-Liverpool boss Benitez has not spoken with Turkey says agent

According to his agent, former Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez has not spoken to the Turkey Football Federation about taking the reins from Guus Hiddink.

Recent reports suggest that Benitez, who most recently was at the helm at Inter Milan, has held talks about the Turkey job as current boss Hiddink's name continues to be heavily linked with the vacant Chelsea job.

But Benitez's representative, Manuel Garcia Quilon, says that his client is not about to step back into international management.

"He has not been approached by Turkey and hence, he has not held talks regarding coaching the national team," Quilon said.

"He has received some offers from several clubs and his priority is to remain in England."
