Rafa Benitez has reportedly shown an interest in the Wolves managerial vacancy.

The Spaniard has been out of work since getting the sack from Everton back in January of this year.

Wolves’ search for a new head coach is in full swing and many names have already been linked with replacing Bruno Lage at Molineux.

Seemingly, Julen Lopetegui is looking the most likely to get the job at the time of writing.

The Spaniard apparently has a pre-agreement with Wolves, and is set to manage one last game for Sevilla tomorrow night against Borussia Dortmund.

Prior to those claims, 90min had reported that Benitez had shown an interest in become the next Wolves manager, as had Paulo Fonseca, currently at Lille.

Fonseca was close to become succeeding Steve Bruce at Newcastle United following their takeover. Seemingly he is quite keen to manager in England.

Benitez endured a poor spell at Goodison Park.

He lasted just 22 games, and was always up against it with the supporters given his previous association with Liverpool.

It is unclear whether Wolves have actually had any kind of contact with Benitez or if they even have any interest in interviewing him.

It is simply stated that the 62-year-old has an interest in the job.

Wolves should steer clear of Rafa Benitez, and it seems they are doing

Many Wolves fans have bemoaned the football on show at Molineux for the past couple of years.

A lot of supporters are desperate to see an entertaining style that yields goals.

Benitez is not really known for implementing this with his teams, taking a more conservative approach in games.

He has obviously achieved a lot in his career. He has managed many clubs, and won 12 trophies in total in his career to date. But he doesn’t feel like the right fit for Wolves.

There have been no suggestions that Wanderers are considering him for the job, and hopefully officials will plump for another Spaniard in Julen Lopetegui.
