Rafa Benitez is too good for Leeds – Conor McGilligan

Conor McGilligan says there is no chance Rafa Benitez joins Leeds United because of the threat of relegation.

Leeds sit in 19th place in the Premier League without a win in their last 9 league games. This form led to the sacking of Jesse Marsch, who was in charge of The Whites for over a year.

The club are yet to hire a replacement, with multiple candidates dropping out of the race. Conor McGilligan says Rafa Benitez will also reject the offer because of the threat of relegation:

“Obviously he’s worked at [Real] Madrid, he’s worked at Chelsea but I don’t think Rafa would come. He wants to stay in the Premier League, he wants a project. Are Leeds going to stay in the Premier League? Is he really going to take over a team that is where we are?

“I don’t think he’s ever taken control of a team that is in the position that Leeds are in.”

Michael Skubala will still be in charge of the team as interim manager for upcoming fixtures.
