The former Liverpool and Real Madrid boss, who has been linked with the vacant managerial positions at Everton or Arsenal, is currently in charge of Dalian Yifang in China after leaving Newcastle in the summer.
“Obviously I have Liverpool connections, that is very clear. But at the same time we are involved in the city, we have a lot of friends in the city, Evertonians and Liverpudlians," he told Sky Sports' Monday Night Football.
“So I don't have any problem with the fans, with the people there. Obviously we are closer to Liverpool but in the future, I am a professional, so in the future, you never know.
"Imagine I want to stay in England, I want to stay close to my family, I cannot get a job, then you have a job there close to you."
