Benitez could be in line for a return as struggling Milan eye former Liverpool boss
Returning? Rafael Benitez during his spell as Inter boss
Rafa Benitez is being considered by AC Milan to replace under-pressure coach Massimiliano Allegri.
Milan are 15th in Serie A after losing five of their first eight games and Allegri may be sacked if they lose at home to Genoa on Saturday.
Milan owner and former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, 76, has been sentenced to one year in prison for tax fraud.
Benitez was at Liverpool for six years, during which time he famously won the European Cup in 2005. He also captured the FA Cup in 2006.
He couldn't claim the one prize Liverpool fans yearn for above all others however, the league title, coming closest in 2009, when the Merseysiders lost out to Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United in a dramatic race.
After leaving Liverpool, Benitez became manager of Milan's great rivals Inter, but was sacked half-way through his first season in charge.
