Rafa Benitez due in Madrid today to finalise contract terms


Rafa Benitez is due in Madrid today to finalise the terms of his contract.

Benitez took charge of his final match in charge of Napoli yesterday, failing to clinch a Champions League spot as Lazio won 4-2 in Naples to sour the Spaniard’s departure, and will fly straight out to the Spanish capital today.

The 55-year-old left his hotel in Naples this morning and told AS “I am ready, I can’t wait to be there [Madrid]”.

The former Liverpool coach will finalise his deal in the Spanish capital today and an official announcement could be made today or tomorrow, with Benitez expected to be presented as Madrid’s new coach on Wednesday.
