Benitez is back home in the Wirral after a difficult time in Italy.
"It's really strange to be relaxed but now I'm watching games in a different way," he told the Mail on Sunday.
"You are trying to take notes, analyse things, but it is not the same as when you need to be ready for the next game. You can enjoy the football a little bit more. But you know you have to be ready, because we have had some offers from abroad, though for now it is better to be calm and choose the right team."
