Sissoko hopes Juventus appoint Liverpool boss

The Italian side are looking for a new boss, following their sacking of Ciro Ferrara.

Alberto Zaccheroni will stay in charge until the summer, but the Old Lady has been linked with a move for Benitez.

“Benitez? If he came I would be very happy,” the midfielder said on the Juventus channel.

“He gave me the opportunity to play in Valencia when I was 17 and with him I won a title.

“He is an excellent technician but when he knew me I was still immature. Now I’ve grown up as a footballer.”
