The 56-year-old New Castle United manager was said to have been shortlisted by Arsenal's board as Arsene Wenger's future at the club is still kept in the dark.
But Wenger has explained that he is not ready to leave his position as the coach of Arsenal. He stated this while reacting to utterances made by former Arsenal star Ian Wright who said the Frenchman could leave at the end of the season.
However, Benitez will have serious competition for the post with Borussia Dortmund’s Thomas Tuchel having been installed as among the favorites.
