Liverpool boss Benitez not interested in Real Madrid move

Rafa Benitez is not interested in abandoning Liverpool for Real Madrid. Sport says Benitez is the No1 choice for Real president Florentino Perez to succeed Manuel Pellegrini at the end of the season.

But Benitez will not consider moving to the Santiago Bernabeu, where he knows he will not enjoy the control over transfer policy and youth development he has at Liverpool.

The Spaniard fought hard last year for greater influence over the playing and coaching staff at Liverpool and will not give that up to start all over again under Perez and general manager Jorge Valdano.
