SNTV spoke to former Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez on Tuesday about Hillsborough, Liverpool football club and his hopes for a return to management. He was promoting a book that he has published called 'Champions League Dreams'.
SOUNDBITE: (English) Rafa Benitez, former Liverpool manager (Q:What did you make of last weeks revelations about the Hillsborough disaster?):
"I think it's important because the truth (has) come through. Now they (the families) have to fight for justice in another way. So now everybody knows they were right. So now it is just to find - how can we move forward. How can they fight for justice. It was really important for the families and really important for the city."
SOUNDBITE: (English) Rafa Benitez, former Liverpool manager (Q: Do you think they can qualify for Europe this season?):
"They (Liverpool) have enough quality in the team. (Luis) Suarez is a great striker. (Steve) Gerrard is still around. The young players are coming through. (Raheem) Sterling is doing a great great job now. I feel they have enough quality and there will be just a question of time before they start winning games. And they have to challenge for the top four."
SOUNDBITE: (English) Rafa Benitez, former Liverpool manager (Q: Is there any particular league that you'd be holding out for, would it be a return to the Premier League, La Liga for example?):
"Yeah the Premier League is maybe the priority because I know the style, I know players, I know managers, so you know everyone. But now I am open to any top league that you can compete and you can compete in the Champions League level."
