North East UK news Rafa Benitez makes pointed reference to Newcastle problem as he eyes PL return PremierLeague-News.Com
PremierLeague-News.Com - Newcastle United could not offer him a project so he left at the end of his contract
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Former Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez has listed his demands for a return for management with a pointed reference to what he felt he didn't get at St James' Park. Benitez - speaking to Marca in Spain - revealed he had already received "more than one" job offer in the last month. He was linked with a return to Newcastle but that turned out to be incorrect. And he has subsequently made it clear there would be no reunion with the club while Mike Ashley continues to own the club. And asked about his future, the reasons for that are pretty clear as he sets out his desire to either challenge for titles or, pointedly, "a serious project" that will lead to a title challenge.

Talking to Marca he said: "I've already received more than one in the last few months, but it wasn't the right time or project.

. "I want to find a club with ambition, one either competing for titles or looking for a serious project that will lead to that later. I always say that the key to success is balance - both on the pitch between defence and attack, but also in the management of the club." Benitez said he had "enjoyed" his time at Newcastle as he looked to another job in England: "My experiences with Liverpool, Chelsea and Newcastle have all been very enjoyable and for the reason my priority is the Premier League. "My family are in England and it's the most complete league, but I can't rule out leaving. As I said, if there's a well-defined project with objectives."
