Rafael Benitez insists he would love to again manage in the Premier League but is remaining calm on a Liverpool return.

The Spaniard, who was linked with the Chelsea job when Andre Villas-Boas was sacked last month, is still in the market for a managerial job and although he has targeted England, he has indicated that he is in no hurry to head back to Anfield.

"Every time that I talk about Liverpool I try to be respectful because of my relationship with the fans and the city,” he said at the Soccerex conference in Manchester.

"I'm a professional and I'm looking for a new job. At this time Kenny (Dalglish) is the manager and I have a lot of respect for him.

"No rush. If Kenny retires in 10 years and I'm available, I would be pleased.

"I want to manage in the Premier League because I know, with my team, we can win trophies.”
