Still a big name…’Korea-bound’ Benitez reaches agreement in principle with Celta Vigo

It’s still a big name. Rafael Benitez has reached an agreement in principle to take over at Celta Vigo.

“The club has reached an agreement in principle with Benitez to lead the club for three campaigns, including a special centenary season,” Celta Vigo announced on its official website on Thursday카지노사이트.

Benitez was once a world-class coach. Benitez began his coaching career at Real Valladolid in 1995, before arriving at Valencia in 2001 and quickly guiding them to the top of La Liga, attracting attention from across Europe. In the 2003-04 season, they won both the league and the UEFA Cup (now the Europa League).

The good times continued at Liverpool. Benitez arrived at Anfield in 2004, and after winning the UEFA Champions League (UCL) that season in what has been dubbed the “Miracle in Istanbul,” he was tipped to lead the Premier League through an era alongside Jose Mourinho.

However, he has since fallen short. From Inter Milan to Everton, Mourinho tasted failure almost everywhere. His only notable achievements were lifting the Coppa Italia with Napoli and returning Newcastle United to the Premier League.

At Everton in particular, he was consistent in his ability to completely destroy a team. Not only did Benitez plunge Everton into the relegation zone, but he also sold the club’s next captain, Lukaku Digne, over a feud. This led to questions about his future as a manager.

That’s why he was in the running for the South Korean job. The South Koreans have been keen on managers who are experiencing a career downturn after the departure of Paulo Bento, but Benitez admitted that he received an offer from South Korea but turned it down, saying that he wanted to stay in Europe.

He then took the helm of Celta Vigo. He returned to Everton a year and a half after being sacked in January 2022. Celta Vigo celebrated the club’s 100th anniversary with the appointment of a highly-regarded manager. The appointment hasn’t been fully confirmed, but with Benitez’s name appearing on the club’s official website, an official announcement is expected soon.
