Benitez talks of Madrid fondness

Rafa Benitez has said that he has a special link with Real Madrid, the team he has been linked with increasingly of late.

Benitez is reportedly one of the favourites to replace Jose Mourinho at the end of the season.

“Real Madrid have a determined manager with a contract and this deserves respect. As a manager, you always have your sweetheart. I have a link with the fans and they have treated me well,” Benitez told Radio Nacional de España.

“I arrived at Madrid when I was 13 years old and I’m from Madrid. But I don’t want to get involved in this speculation because my words aren’t always interpreted.”
