Former Liverpool and Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez has revealed he has received offers from two different clubs in the last 15 days - amid reports claiming he may return to Anfield.

The Spaniard led Napoli to the Coppa Italia and to a third-place finish in Serie A last season. But his future at the Italian club is under increasing scrutiny this season following a slow start to the campaign.

Having already being knocked out in the play-off round of the Champions League, Napoli are sixth in Serie A after their 2-0 defeat to AC Milan on 14 December.

Recent reports in Italy claimed Benitez could be sacked if the results do not change soon but he is expected to leave the club at the end of the season when his contract expires.

When asked whether the uncertainty over his future was affecting the team performance, he said: "My contract? I don't want to talk about it.

"The important thing is to improve. Does it affect the players? The situation is the same as it was before [wins over] Roma and Fiorentina. I want to win in the here and now."

"I've said no to two offers because I'm the coach of Napoli. For now I want to work here, then we'll see," he said, according to La Gazzetta Dello Sport.

He added: "In the past 15 days I've turned down two offers but I won't tell you who."

Benitez's quotes come at a time when Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is also under mounting pressure at Merseyside, after the club's recent Champions League exit at the group stage and the heavy defeat suffered at the hands of Manchester United.

Furthermore Benitez, who won the Champions League in 2005 with the Reds and the Europa League at Chelsea, recently suggested he is likely to return to the Premier League as his family still lives in Liverpool.

Benitez said: "I have one year left this year and the future, you never know. But I am talking to the chairman and thinking about the future with Napoli and all of the possibilities. My family is still here in England so we have to consider a lot of things."
