Hodgson 'surprised' at Rafa rumours

Roy Hodgson says it would be “surprising” if Inter boss Rafa Benitez were to make a comeback to Liverpool.

There are numerous rumours around the fate of the Nerazzurri Coach, who looks set to be axed after his ‘back me or sack me' demands.

Some British sources suggest Rafa could even return to Anfield Road, the club he left in the summer.

“It would be surprising. If he were the right man for the job then it would have been wiser not to let him go for six months and then have to bring him back,” said Hodgson.

“This job will always be linked with lots of people. I would think that when you are in one of the top jobs in the country, it would be very strange if other people weren't being linked with your job.

“I'm sure a lot of people are very envious of my position at this club and would very much like to take my place.”
