Rafael Benitez admits he would welcome the chance to become Liverpool manager for a second time.
Benitez, who guided the Reds to Champions League glory in 2005, left Anfield last summer after a six-year reign and took over at Italian and European champions Inter Milan.
However, the Spaniard suffered the same fate as successor Roy Hodgson, with both men lasting less than a year with Inter and Liverpool respectively.
And with the future of Reds caretaker manager Kenny Dalglish still to be confirmed, out-of-work Benitez claims he would relish the chance to head back to Merseyside.
The 50-year-old told Sky Sports News: “I am really proud of being the manager of Liverpool Football Club and I would like to come back in the future.
“You never know (when) because Kenny is doing a really good job. It's a question of time. You never know in the future.
“It would be a dream. I would be really pleased to come back in the future.”
